The presentation looks at a unique form of immigrant transnational practice—cross-space consumption. We consider the act of consumption to have not only functional value that satisfies material needs, but also social value that confers symbolic meaning and social status.

The 8-day workshop will train up to 30 graduate students, researchers and beginning faculty in best-practices and in methodologies particularly relevant to the study of immigration and migration populations.
