PhD student: Nguyen Nhat Nguyen [completed]

phd-n-nhatnguyenPhD student from 2012 to 2016 on the influence of religion and post-communism ideology on Korean youth consumption.

He successfully defended his thesis in 2016 ‘Dynamique de l’interaction entre formes culturelles globales et locale : Étude ethnographique multi-site de la consommation musicale chez les jeunes Vietnamiens’.

As a 3rd year PhD candidate in marketing at University of Lille Nord de France / Skema business school under the supervision of Prof. Nil Özçaglar-Toulouse, as well as a personal fan of Korean popular music (K-Pop), I investigated the empowerment of K-Pop which is considered as “dominated” by American pop music (A-Pop).

By looking at the musical taste conflict between two Vietnamese musical fandoms, my research aimed to understand how consumers and producers involve in empowering “dominated” culture.

This project contributes to the theory of globalization.

Nguyen is now Assistant Professor at the University of Jean Moulin Lyon 3, IAE lyon.
