Practices and the environment: performing sustainability and doing STS

In recent years, practice theory from sociology has become an increasingly important starting point for analyses of the relationships between environment, sustainability, technology and everyday life. With this in mind, Ruth Rettie and Kevin Burchell organised a highly successful track at the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST) conference in Trento, Italy, 1-4 September, 2010, entitled: Practices and the environment: performing sustainability and doing STS. We are very pleased to share the call for papers, and the abstracts and slides from this track. We are very grateful to the presenters for giving us permission to do this.

You can download the 'Call for Papers' here.
