Many academics, in different countries and contexts, are developing practice theory or conducting practice theoretically informed research.  At present, there is no network through which PhD students and early career researchers can connect to expand their understanding of practice theory, to exchange ideas and to learn from others who share interests in these topics.  The Practice Theory Consortium will facilitate and foster these connections.

The Map

The Consortium Crew is establishing a map of people working in this field. You can find the  latest version of the map here. If you want to add yourself to the map, you can do so by filling in this form. The map is periodically updated, so your details won’t appear right away. We are visiting people on the map as part of a virtual world tour of practice theory enthusiasts
