The Gathering is designed to foster connections between PhD researchers, early career
researchers, and others working with theories of practice across the world and in various disciplines.

On the 18th of November the Gathering will start with five ‘curtain raising’ presentations about the contributions practice theories have made to different disciplines. There will also be opportunities that day to participate in group discussions and reading rooms. These sessions will draw on the expertise and experience of, amongst others:
Thomas Alkemeyer, Stanley Blue, Jonathan Everts, Silvia Gherardi, Hans Kjellberg,
Lenneke Kuijer, Davide Nicolini, Hilmar Schäfer, Ted Schatzki, Elke Schüssler, Elizabeth
Shove, Ela Sjølie.

On the 19th of November the sessions will focus on writings submitted by participants for comment and discussion.Throughout the Gathering there will also be opportunities to meet and chat with fellow practice theory enthusiasts during more casual sessions.

To register to be a part of the 2022 Gathering, please fill in this form and send us a research postcard (download the tempate here) by the 31st of July 2022.

If you want to submit writing for review and comment you need to provide a brief (250 word) abstract via the registration form. The writing may relate to your current research project, be a part of your thesis, or be another piece of thought – it is up to you. We will invite longer pieces (no more than 3000 words) based on these abstracts. The deadline for the longer pieces will be the 1st of October 2022.

No fee is required to take part in the event.

The number of participants will be limited and participation will be granted on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

If you have any questions, please contact:
