Keynote: Controlling as practising

Research output: Contribution to conferenceKeynotepeer-review


'Practice' is a chameleonic word that, rather confusingly, may be used in the English language as either a noun – a routinised set of linked activities – or a verb – the ongoing emergence of social experience. Either way, noun or verb, calls for a particular theorisation of time and temporality. In this presentation, I will elaborate the ontological and epistemological differences between practices (noun) and practising (verb), highlighting implications for how we engage time and temporality in our theorising. I will also point to the relevance of these philosophical arguments for understanding how controlling operates.
