Consumption, Adult Learning, and Adult Education: Envisioning a Pedagogy of Consumption
Sandlin, Jennifer A.
Convergence, v41 n1 p47-62 2008
In this article I call for adult educators to begin taking consumption seriously as a site of adult learning and education. I provide an overview of various sociological perspectives on consumption, and also discuss several areas where education, learning, and consumption intersect. In doing so, I seek to convince adult educators to more vigorously begin discussing, reflecting upon, learning about, teaching, and researching consumption and its intersections with adult education and learning.
