They practice reading as they learn the formal terms and local expressions needed to discuss peacebuilding, reconciliation, and community issues and to interact in settings related to the program themes.
Intersectional Structuring of Consumption Spring Curator: Notably, we see a rise of citizen-led social justice movements, from Indebted in the wake of the economic crisis to the more recent BlackLivesMatter challenging systemic racism and MeToo calling out systemic sexism.
In addition to increasing wealth polarization, we face a postcolonial globe of increasing numbers of refugees and persistent race, ethnic, national, religious, social class, and gender inequalities—a world of failed ideals of multiculturalism, diversity, and equal rights.
In such a situation, more than ever since the launch of the Journal of Consumer Research in —a perhaps more seemingly progressive time than today, consumer researchers need to do research that matters and attend to the implications of their choice of topics and body of work.
Inequalities—racial, ethnic, disability based, national or postcolonialsocial class, gender, etc. This curation highlights studies that attended to the dynamics of inequality, and in particular, those that employed or considered or were allied in some way with intersectionality.
Intersectionality is an approach to studying power differentials by examining the relationships among subjectivity, knowledge, power, resistance, and social structures.
It began its life in law, focused on equal rights for black women, as a prism used to highlight problems and dynamics that are generally ignored or quieted e.
Intersectionality is a matrix orientation aimed at uncovering the relational nature of privilege and oppression and the covert forms of complicity between them e. It entails the notion that social positions are entangled with the dynamic interaction of multidimensional structures of domination.
For example, it examines capitalist patriarchy rather than capitalism and patriarchy, or black women, rather than race and gender. Intersectionality is an epistemological practice, an ontological project, and a political orientation—contesting hegemonic logic and asking for social change May It analyzes the interconnections of facets of identity and forms of domination—the matrix of relations.
What specific arrangements of objects and tactics do they mobilize to make everyday life more tolerable if not more equal? The politics of respectability respectability is one such arrangement.
Respectability makes life more tolerable by offering a counternarrative that disavows stigma through status-oriented displays.
This strategy of action emerged alongside mass consumer culture in the late 19th century, but what relevance does it have to those who are stigmatized in contemporary consumer culture? Based on ethnographic interviews and observations with middle-class African Americans, respectability remains an important strategy that has undergone profound changes since its origins while still operating in similar ways.
In the late 20th century it fractured into two related but distinct counternarratives: Perceptions of how well either counternarrative manages stigma depend on how ideology, strategy, and consumption are connected via specific sociohistorical features of place and individual power resources.
I illustrate those connections through four cases that show perceived success and perceived failure for each counternarrative.Culture and Dynamics Board culture has a significant influence on the way your board carries out its work and shapes your board’s performance.

Cultural Dynamics is a peer reviewed journal that seeks to publish research - and occasionally other materials such as interviews, documents and literary creations - focused on the structured inequalities of the contemporary world, and the myriad ways people negotiate these conditions.
