Period

primo semestre (lauree magistrali) dal Oct 5, 2020 al Dec 23, 2020.

Learning outcomes

The course aims to illustrate the social implications of consumer behavior, highlighting its symbolic and relational traits so as to develop a vision of the phenomenon that can integrate and complete the knowledge provided on the topic by the other courses of the CdS. Stressing the relevance and pervasiveness of the different processes of individual socialization, it will be shown how taste is a socially acquired category and how consumption practices, beyond economic capital, find fundamental explanatory variables in cultural and social capital.

Program

The course is divided into two parts. The first one will deal with the social and cultural transformations which gave birth to the consumption society and it will explore the main theoretical frames applied to the consumption behaviors. In this first part the concept of seduction will be also deepened together with its connection to the world of marketing and consumption, highlighting its relevance for the analysis of the so called phase of hyperconsuption (Lipovetsky).

The second part will be entirely dedicated to the work of Pierre Bourdieu, an author nowadays considered as a classic who researched consistently the connections among social classes, life styles and consumption practices.

PREREQUISITES:
