From Aesthetic to Epistemic Consumption - Analyzing Knowledge Practices in Consumption Collectives
Advances in Consumer Research
This paper explores the collective pursuit of quasi-scientific knowledge practices as a consumption activity. By comparatively analyzing focal knowledge practices in two highly-specialized consumption collectives we shed light on how consumers engage with epistemic knowledge. We thereby contribute to a better understanding of collective consumption in today's knowledge society.
