Abstract: The purpose of this dissertation is to understand how market rituals spread within and between distinct cultural contexts, and how this process occurs in value co-creating service ecosystems. By integrating service-dominant (S-D) logic and the markets-as-practice framework, this study traces key micro, meso, as well as macro-level market practices to explore the systemic and collaborative aspects of market creation. The research project contributes to marketing scholarship by proposing a fractal model of market co-creation, which offers an alternative way of understanding markets that shifts away from a diffusion of goods perspective to a translation of practice approach. This study contributes to early efforts to conduct empirical work inspired by the S-D logic perspective. Specifically, the study explores the contested practice of Valentine’s Day in the emerging market of Indonesia as a means to investigate the dynamic multi-level processes of practice translation and institutionalization.
