What’s going on here?

Hi, I’m Sarah.

One of my favorite things to do is travel.  When I first arrive at a destination, I do two things in order to immerse myself in the culture: I go for a run, and I go grocery shopping.

I have found this to be an effective way to quickly become acquainted with local people, their environment, and their everyday choices.

This curiosity is a natural theme for me.  I have a background in marketing and economics and I enjoy combining these interests to better understand consumer behavior and the role that it plays in society.  I’m a rising PhD student at the University of Arkansas; my research interests include consumer culture, conscious consumption, and sustainability.  This blog is a platform for idea development.

Welcome to consumption & curiosities.
