A Theory of Shopping

A Theory of Shopping offers a highly original perspective on one of our most basic everyday activities - shopping. We commonly assume that shopping is primarily concerned with individuals and materialism. But Miller rejects this assumption and follows the surprising route of analysing shopping by means of an analogy with anthropological studies of sacrificial ritual. He argues that the act of purchasing goods is almost always linked to other social relations, and most especially those based on love and care. The ethnographic sections of the book are based on a years study of shopping on a street in North London. This provides the basis for a sensitive description of the issues the shopper confronts when making decisions as to what to buy. Miller develops a theory to account for these observations, arguing that shopping typically consists of three major stages which reflect the three key stages of many rites of sacrifice. In both shopping and sacrifice the ultimate intention is to constitute others as desiring subjects. Finally the book examines certain historical shifts in both subjects and objects of devotion, in particular, ideals of gender and love. This treatment of shopping from the perspective of comparative anthropology represents a highly innovative approach to one of the most familiar tasks of our daily lives. Written in a clear and accessible manner, this book will be of interest to students and academics in anthropology, sociology and cultural studies, as well as anybody who wants to consider more deeply the nature of their own everyday activities.

Shopping Malls Usa

In this eBook you will find all information about Shopping Malls in the USA / United States of America. The mall shopping center is an interesting place. It is of course not just a place to go shopping, but it has become a multi-purpose place. Normally, people used to go shopping in downtown areas of cities and go there for other activities as well, but they now go to the mall. It has become a fixture of modern life, one of those things that we cant imagine doing without. For a relatively modern development, the mall shopping center has been a successful idea that has made fortunes for developers, investors, and retailers. What it has done for the average person is another story, but its importance in everyday life is huge, and the influence of the mall is everywhere. It seems like the primary function of a mall these days is a social space, a place for people of all ages to meet up, eat, talk, and generally hang out together. For young people, its the only place to get together and socialize. For others, the shopping center is a place to walk (mall walking is an established practice for older folks) and meet friends, but they have other social spaces like the church, the community center, and so on. But for the young crowd, its the mall or stay at home.

About the book Lighter through everyday life: Decluttering up your life! (Minimalism: Declutter your life, home, mind & soul) We live too fast, rush through overfull days, and there is always too much lying around. But that could change. Because: In every one of us is the stuff of the time-millionaire. We ourselves are the ones who turn the clock, because we are stuffing more and more into our everyday lives, and that makes our precious time of life short. We do not have too little time, but too much to do. In this way we ourselves bring the hectic pace into our lives, which we want to avoid. Never really get to the point, and always thinking somewhere else. A simple life with more success, freedom, happiness, money, love and time - that's what we all want. But in our modern performance-oriented society, however, this simplicity often falls by the wayside: consumption, ownership and performance seem to be the more important values, at least superficially. Minimalism as a way of life refers to a way of living that enables everyone to concentrate on the essential things. Minimalism can, but does not have to cover all areas of life. Whoever decides to want to live minimalistically, usually does so very consciously. The motives are almost always similar: # Pressure to perform and career constraints: Too much stress at work, in studies and in leisure time # Excessive lifestyle...body worship, shopping and social media communication: overtaxed by exaggeration and abundance # Manipulation by the marketing industry: social coercion to possess certain consumer goods Minimalism means self-determination and self-realization. Do not let others or society dictate what a good and right life should look like. Freeing yourself from black and white thinking, reducing ownership and responsibilities to save time and money and have more energy for family, friends, hobbies and travel. Start today by making the most of your life and building a positive mindset. Becoming a MINIMALIST...begins in the HEAD!

In High Theory/Low Culture , Brottman uses the tools of high cultural theory to examine many areas of todays popular culture, including style magazines, sport, shopping, tabloid newspapers, horror movies and pornography. In doing so, she not only demonstrates the practical use of high theory as it relates to our everyday world, but she also investigates the kinds of low culture that are regularly dismissed by academic scholars. Through a close examination of these cultural forms, Brottman reveals how the kinds of popular culture that we usually take for granted are, in fact, far more complex and sophisticated than is normally assumed.

Baudrillard and the Culture Industry - Returnin...
95,19 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book argues for the importance of the theory of the culture industry in todays world. It begins by considering the neglect of the culture industry in the second and third generation of the Frankfurt School, presenting historical background information and criticisms on the theories of Habermas and Honneth. In our age, the culture industry is something quite different from what Adorno and Horkheimer described or could even imagine in the twentieth century. Today, the masses can not only access the media but can also respond to the messages they receive. A key question that arises, then, is why the masses, even after gaining access to their own media, still adhere to the values of the capitalist system? Why havent they achieved a class consciousness? This work seeks to answer those questions. Drawing on Jean Baudrillards work, it reveals the semiotic aspects of the culture industry and describes the industry in the age of simulation and hyperreality. The book argues that the culture industry has now entered the micro level of our everyday life through shopping centers, the image of profusion and more. Further, it explores new aspects of the culture industry, such as a passion for participating in the media, the consumed vertigo of catastrophe, and masking the absence of a profound reality. As such, the book will particularly appeal to graduates and researchers in sociology and sociological theory, and all those with an interest in the Frankfurt School and the works of Jean Baudrillard. Amirhosein Khandizaji has a PhD in sociology from the Free University of Berlin. His main fields of study are the theories of the Frankfurt school and Baudrillard. He is the founder and editor of Berlin Journal of Critical Theory.

Masters Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,0, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, language: English, abstract: The digital revolution has led to undisputable and irreversible changes in the way we experience everyday life. This applies especially to our shopping experiences. With the increasing number of sales channels and omnipresent, easy-to-reach information, people have grown to be the best informed customers who have ever existed. To accommodate these changes in the business context, companies have to change their traditional push-based, brand-centric view to one recognizing and catering to an economy of connected experiences that are equally owned by company and customer. This integrated brand experience is referred to as omnichannel experience. Omnichannel marketing means that companies now need to provide a seamless shopping experience across channels, allowing their customers to switch between devices and the physical preference whenever and however they like. This work raised the hypothesis that today, many premium fashion companies are still struggling to offer seamless and engaging omnichannel experiences, because they lack a holistic measurement framework including future-oriented KPIs - due to legacy systems and departments silo perspectives. The contribution to this article is twofold. First, it consists of a review of existing literature on the subject. Second, to leverage the significance and implication of this current topic, interviews with seven leading industry experts were conducted. The gained insights were interwoven with the thesis literature review and support the works findings and statements.
