This agenda-setting book provides an interdisciplinary way to engage with everyday activities and environments. Arguing for an ethnographic approach, it uses detailed examples, based in real world and digital research, to bring its theories to life. The book focuses on the sensory, embodied, mobile and mediated elements of practice and place as a route to understanding wider issues. By doing so, it outlines a theoretical and methodological approach to understanding contemporary everyday life and activism.
