Consumer Studies Center – CEC

Coordinated by professors Leticia Casotti, Maribel Suarez and Roberta Campos, CEC intends to stimulate a pluralized view of contemporary consumption and management practices, inspiring researchers, government, companies and even consumers to see new angles of their daily practices.

The center also aims to deepen and generate knowledge about qualitative methods (eg, method of itineraries, netnography, life history, analysis of cultural texts, ethnography of consumption), which produce integration of different areas of Human Sciences, such as Sociology , Anthropology and Psychology, with the objective of generating information and reflections on Marketing questions, both in the academic and business spheres.

Books and Chapters

Cultura e Consumo no Brasil: estado atual e novas perspectivas

Chapter 1: Preparing the Way for the Arrival of Consumer Culture Theory. By Roberta Campos, Thaysa Nascimento and Valeria de Pinho. The area of culture and consumption is always a challenging adventure. The articles found in this book are, at the same time, a guide and a trip for those interested in this type of knowledge adventure. The field is built from other areas that inspire, support and teach us how to deal with the serendipity of consumption. The interpretative approach brings to knowledge more flexibility in the place of generalizations, more tolerance in the place of the search for truths and more relativism in the place of the search for security. In: Marcelo de Rezende Pinto; Georgiana Luna Batinga. (Org.). Culture and Consumption in Brazil: current status and new perspectives. Belo Horizonte: Editora PUC Minas, 2018, v. 1, p. 55-62.

O Tempo da Beleza

Launched in 2008, the book The Time of Beauty, Consumption and Female Behavior: New Looks, organized by Leticia Casotti, Maribel Suarez and Roberta Dias Campos, is the result of the “Beauty in Everyday” research carried out by the L’Oréal Chair Consumer. The work was carried out with women from Rio, upper class and aged between 17 and 55 years old, applying the Itinerary Method – an investigation carried out in the domestic environment of the interviews -, presenting testimonials and photos of the products to define, in a closer to reality, the behavior and consumption of personal hygiene products and cosmetics. It also gathers articles by psychologists, anthropologists, economists and sociologists, leading the reader to reflect on the different cultures, the academic functioning of societies and the particularities of our time, thus dissociating the theme from the usual universe of futility.

À Mesa com a Família

Through qualitative research, Letícia Casotti offers, in this book, a comprehensive view of preferences, conflicts and even the perplexities that Brazilian food consumers go through. With an engaging text, she points out, in this study that it originated from her doctoral thesis in the area of Technological Innovation and Industrial Organization (ITOI), important points to be thought about and used by companies and professionals related to food consumption.

Relações com os Consumidores: Experiências Brasileiras

Producing knowledge about the specificities present in relations with Brazilian consumers is a challenge that needs to be faced by researchers and executives in our country. In Consumer Relations: Brazilian Experiences, recent cases of companies operating in Brazil are described, through which the reader can get to know and delve into practical and conceptual aspects related to Relationship Marketing, such as the implementation of CRM (Customer Relationship Management) ), the performance of SACs (Customer Service) and Complaints. By Leticia Casotti and Maribel Suarez.
