Languages of publication
The article is based on an analysis of accounts about everyday consumption practices during the crisis in the 1980s. Consumption is treated as a lens which enables us to analyse women’s experiences of the crisis. The micro-social definition of the crisis adopted in the text focuses our attention on the activity of individuals who developed strategies to adapt to the new situation. The analysis covered personal documents, journals and diaries, as well as (to illustrate the expert discourse) specialist press and literature, and women’s magazines. The article focuses on the recorded experiences of educated big city dwellers.
