Practice Theory and Work Task Performance: How Are They Related and How Can They Contribute to Study of Information Practices
Katriina Byström and Annemaree Lloyd
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.
