New Book – Practice Theory and Education Diffractive readings in professional practice

practice-bookPractice Theory and Education – Diffractive readings in professional practice

I am excited that this new book is available from today. Edited by Julianne Lynch, Julie Rowlands, Trevor Gale, Andrew Skourdoumbis, the book includes 16 chapters.

From the blurb: “Practice Theory and Education challenges how we think about ‘practice’, examining what it means across different fields and sites. It is organised into four themes: discursive practices; practice, change and organisations; practising subjectivity; and professional practice, public policy and education.”

I thoroughly enjoyed co-authoring Chapter 4 with Dr Julianne Lynch, ‘Michel de Certeau: Research writing as an everyday practice’.

The book is available in hardback (there are e-book options) from Routledge, and is also sold through Amazon and other online sellers.
