Alexander Tiercelin is Assistant professor at University of Reims – IUT Troyes. He teaches customer relationship management and entrepreneurship. Starting from our thesis devoted to the consumption practices of hardcore girl gamers, we question the relationship to the norms, and genders in the field of cosplay, or more broadly of geek culture. Our research approach is based on qualitative methods to understand consumer behavior, particularly life stories and comprehensive interview.
