Upcoming Special Issue “Disruptions in Everyday Life: Changing Social Practices & Dynamics of Consumption” in Sustainability: Science, Practice, and Policy
We are delighted to announce that our ongoing work will be featured in an impending Special issue “Disruptions in Everyday Life: changing social practices & dynamics of consumption” in Sustainability: Science, Practice, and Policy. This special issue is being co-edited by ENP’s dr. Mary Greene and dr. Sigrid Wertheim-Heck, along with dr. Marlyne Sahakian and dr. Sophie Dubuisson-Quellier. This Special Issue features a range of papers advancing practice theoretical understandings of everyday consumption. The papers explore the intersections of disruption and changing social practices through a range of intersecting themes such as food experimentation, transformations in mobilities, and changing temporal rhythms of daily life emerging brought about by systemic interruptions in the normal flow of social life. In doing so the Special Issue seeks to progress the field of consumption conceptually and empirically by studying underlying dynamics in social practices revealed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Questions considered by the Special Issue include (but are not limited to): What new practices and ways of doing and arranging daily life are emerging? How are disruptions to systems of provision resulting in socially differentiated impacts on everyday life? What practices might stick and how can systems of provision, including policy, support the emergence of more resilience, and ‘sustainable’ practices?
Stay tuned for more information on papers emerging. In the meantime, check out our blog for news about the project.
New Podcast Series Coming Soon
