Households and consumption practices
Summary

This work addresses the transformation of values in used household goods within Melbourne and contributes to ideas about consumption, waste and sustainable cities. This project emerged out of her earlier research focus on changing values of things and places in the context of heritage and environmental change. That work highlighted the fluidity of notions of value in both things and places and the slippery relationship between affective value, utility, and commodity or market value.
