Hosted by the Practice Theory Consortium

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.  You are invited to join us for one or two days of activities.

The overall topic will be social change.  On the 14th of November 2024 the Gathering will start with five short ‘curtain raising’ presentations on what theories of practice have to say about change –  including emergent change; change across different time scales; capacities to effect change; and the use of practice theory to change society.  This will be followed by  group discussions and reading rooms. These sessions will draw on the expertise and experience of:

Silvia Gherardi, Mikko Jalas, Cecily Maller, Janine Morley, Davide Nicolini, Seweryn Rudnicki, Ela Sjølie and others.

On the 15th of November 2024 sessions will discuss work in progress that participants will share in groups.

Throughout the Gathering there will be opportunities to meet and chat with fellow practice theory enthusiasts during more casual sessions.

No fee is required to take part in the event. The number of participants is limited, and participation will be granted on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.

Deadline for registration: 26 July 2024.

In 2021, 2022 and 2023 the Consortium Crew organised World Gatherings of PhD students and early career researchers working on practice theory.  You can find an example of the 2023 programme here.
