Social Interaction as Key to Understanding the Intertwining of Routinized and Culturally Contested Consumption
Professor Bente Halkier has contributed to the journal Cultural Sociology with the article ‘Social Interaction as Key to Understanding the Intertwining of Routinized and Culturally Contested Consumption’.
In the article, Bente Halkier suggests how social interaction can be conceptualised as enabling the understanding of the intermingling of the culturally contested and routinized parts of consumption within a practice theoretical perspective.
The conceptual suggestion consists in four analytical suggestions for how the culturally tacit and reflexive in food conduct become linked through social interaction. The four suggestions are about coordination, intersection, hybridity and normative accountability. The four suggestions are exemplified empirically on the basis of a number of qualitative studies of food conduct among Danish consumers.
