ANR project ‘ETHNOS’ (ethnicity and consumption)

This project supported by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (National Research Agency) between 2007 and 2010 has focused on the concept of ethnicity in consumption. Immigrant communities from Maghreb and Turkey in France have been analysed, with the aim to understand how consumption practices relate to identity and acculturation processes.

The support from ANR has been particularly useful to establish a network of researchers from varied fields and enable intercultural comparisons.

I coordinated this project, which led to scientific publications and involved events such as an international conference on immigration, consumption and markets in 2009 in Lille.
