Practice theory and work task performance: How are they related and how can they contribute to a study of information practices

Authors


Abstract

Our aim is to introduce an emerging understanding of how practice theory can be used to frame the analysis of (work) task-based research. This analytical work is tentative, but has the capacity of furthering task-based research by addressing the dialogical relationships and embodied performances that constitute practice. We argue that analyses of task as a constitute element of practice can contribute to a rich discussion of knowledge construction in information studies.
