Section three focuses on people’s use of goods after their acquisition. Under what circumstances is the the use of goods important to the constitution of self and of groups? When and how can they be put to political use?
WEEK 8 (November 19) Identity Construction/Display—Subcultures, youth

and otherwise
Western theorists of consumerism often define the period of “mass consumption”

as the moment when people come to construct (or at least represent) their social identity through consumption as much as through production. In a mass consumer society, in other words, one’s identity is largely constituted by what own owns (rather than by what one does for a living). This week’s readings will assess this definition and its implications in socialist regimes.

Please choose two readings from Eastern and two readings from Western Europe. (If you read the Neuburger, read the Auslander on headscarves and crucifixes)
