Laura Einhorn awarded doctorate

In July 2020, Laura Einhorn received her doctorate, with distinction, for “Changing Diets and Food Moralities: The Social Stratification of Meat Consumption in Germany.” In her dissertation, she reveals socioeconomic divisions that exist between consumption patterns and asks to what extent individualization theories are valid. Her study makes it clear that differences in consumption are not simply based on information asymmetry, disinterest, or even morality and highlights the importance of the symbolic dimension of consumption practices for people in different socioeconomic positions. Laura Einhorn was a doctoral student at the International Max Planck Research School on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy (IMPRS-SPCE) from 2016 to 2020.
