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:

On the 16th of November the Gathering  will start with four ‘curtain raising’ presentations on what theories of practice have to say about large social phenomena. This will be followed by  group discussions and reading rooms. These sessions will draw on the expertise and experience of:
Stan Blue | Josi Fernandes | Silvia Gherardi | Ted Schatzki | Elizabeth Shove | Dale Southerton | Matt Watson | Donoxti Baylon | Deborah Giustini | Allison Hui | Mikko Jalas | Cecily Maller | Katy Mason | Janine Morley

 On the 17th of November, and for those who have submitted some writing, sessions will focus on shared works in progress.

Throughout the Gathering there will also 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 will be limited and participation will be granted on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
