Practices and trajectories: A comparative analysis of reading in France, Norway, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA
Southerton et al
Using time diary data to examine practices of reading, this article examines trajectories of change within five countries in the last quarter of the 20th century. It employs a conceptual framework derived from theories of practice to illustrate their application in a quantitative and comparative analysis of change in patterns of consumption. Also, it also provides a conceptual and methodological framework for the application of practice theories to the analysis of consumption and social change.
