Practice theory and research

exploring the dynamics of social life

Spaargaren, G., Weenink, D., & Lamers, M. (2016). Practice theory and research: exploring the dynamics of social life. Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group.

There has been an opsurge in scholarship concerned with theories of social practices in various fields including sociology, geography and management studies. This book provides a systematic introduction and overview of recent formulations of practice theory organised around themes such as: the importance of analysing the role of the non-human alongside the human; the reflexive nature of social science research; the conceptualisation of human agency and macrophenomena; and the dynamics of social change. Combining a variety of detailed empirical research examples with discussion of the relevance of practice theories for policy and social change, this book represents a sourcebook for all academic and professional researchers interested in working with practice theory.
