About this item

Practice Theory: problems, frontiers, opportunities provides a fresh set of theoretical impulses for the surge of practice-based studies currently sweeping across the social disciplines. It addresses key issues facing practice theory and expands the reach of practice theory into new theoretical and empirical terrain, thereby generating new opportunities for social research. The book’s chapters explore phenomena that pervade many practices at once, the processes through which practices connect, the workings of practices and how they form people as participants, and the integration and evolution of practice complexes over time. The contributions also explore connections between practice theory and other sorts of theory and develop as well as illustrate ideas through empirical cases and examples. Most important, the book deepens practice theoretical accounts of complex social dynamics—in the economy, in relation to power, and across different areas of daily life. Bringing together leading theorists of practice, it will quickly become an important reference point for future practice-focused research in the social sciences.
