Situating Everyday Life
Practices and Places



April 2012 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The study of everyday life is fundamental to our understanding of modern society.

This agenda-setting book provides a coherent, interdisciplinary way to engage with everyday activities and environments. Arguing for an innovative, ethnographic approach, it uses detailed examples, based in real world and digital research, to bring its theories to life.

The book focuses on the sensory, embodied, mobile and mediated elements of practice and place as a route to understanding wider issues. By doing so, it convincingly outlines a robust theoretical and methodological approach to understanding contemporary everyday life and activism.

A fresh, timely book, this is an excellent resource for students and researchers of everyday life, activism and sustainability across the social sciences.

Interesting approach, but a bit too specific for all students
