This year’s topic was on ‘Time and STS‘ and the week long course was led by Ulrike Felt, Professor of Science and Technology Studies, University of Vienna.
I was invited to speak about time and theories of practice and gave a lecture on ‘Time as Experience, Landscape, and Rhythm‘.
The participants at the summer school raised important, mainstay questions about theories of practice: on bounding the unit of enquiry; on variation and difference; and on scale. They also had very helpful comments about extending theories of practice and of time by drawing on ideas from other authors that they were working with, including Deleuze, Lefebvre, Thrift, and others.
