Practice Interrupted: When Fatal Disruptions and Irreconcilable Distortions Erode Mutual Understanding and Destroy Social Order

Neomaterialist ontologies share the perspective that all social phenomena are emergent, in a constant state of becoming. Within studies of practice, however, there exists a general assumption of stability as practices reproduce themselves through human carriers. This study revisits practice theory with an ethnomethodological emphasis on practices as emergent phenomena.
