Abstract

Social practice theory addresses both theoretical and method/ological agendas. To date priority has been given to the former, with writing on the latter tending often to be an afterthought to theoretical expositions or fieldwork accounts. This paper gives sustained attention to the method/ological corollaries of a social practice perspective. It both describes method/ological approaches that have already been deployed and makes some suggestions for a fully practice-focused ethnographic research style
