Practice Theory Reading Rooms
Since the spring of 2020, an international network of academics interested in theories of practice have organized a series of Reading Rooms. Each Room discusses a single text and is attended by the text’s author. All Rooms occur on a Wednesday and last for 1.5 hours: roughly 50 minutes discussion of the selected text followed by a response by its author(s) and then an open discussion. The start time for the sessions is 11 am British time.
The next three Rooms are below. Any of them can be “watched” by clicking on the appropriate link found on the Practice Theory website housed at Lancaster University (http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/socialpractice/). Anyone interested in actively participating in one or more of the sessions is invited to contact one of the organizers: Stanley Blue (email@example.com), Ted Schatzki (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Elizabeth Shove (email@example.com).
