The role of teleoaffective profiles in practice adaptation

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Paperpeer-review


Extant practice-oriented adaptation research uses the “collapsed” concept of meanings (Shove et al., 2012), obscuring the role of the “collection” (p.80) of teleoaffective components (Schatzki, 2002) in adaptation. We conceptualise teleoaffective profiles as unique, but bounded by the topography of the practice template and replete with identifiable characteristics. Experiential aspects of practice performances have become more central in our account, but practices as ‘open-ended’ templates remain central. Our theoretical advancement has advanced understanding about the role of ‘meanings’ in experiences and processes of adaptation and further illuminated processes and experiences of adaptation beyond binary outcomes. This contributes to the burgeoning focus on teleoaffective structures in the practice turn (Welch, 2020).
