Exploring the relationship between practice, institution, and change in the 'Organizing Society'

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearch


    The interest for practice-based studies of work and organization stems from the belief that such phenomena as knowledge, meaning, human activity, science, power, language, social institutions, and historical transformations occur and are components of the field of practices. By assuming a processual and performative ontological stance, the practice-based approach directs our attention to the study and representation of the details of work, the intricacies of interactional order, the role of language and discursive practices, the active role of materials and technologies, and the power relations that are embodied in the arrangements that make up our everyday life.
