II.B.3. Profane and sacred consumption: post-modern "fusion of genres"?

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This research project focuses on the dialectics between profane and the sacred in the framework of the shift from modern to post-modern consumption. The major objective is to look at how that shift has changed the interplay between profane and sacred meanings given by consumers to existential objects and phenomena. We decided to focus on four places in which such dialectics is at play, i.e.: the Père-Lachaise cemetery, the Marian sanctuary of Lourdes, the "Stade de France" and the Cora store.
