Event Description

‘Practice’ is everywhere and by now has been awarded its own, praexological turn. But the challenges are real. Do we have a theory to go by? What do scholarly recipes for reconstructing practices miss? Our own scholarly practice is inevitably entangled with the practices we study. Is there something to be gained from this?
