Publics & Practices is a group of researchers interested in examining the social, economic, cultural, political and affective production of publics. We address ourselves to the ways in which publics become a matter of political concern for social scientists, states, corporations, and others.

This a collectively-led and managed research group. Each academic year two co-chairs act as central points of contact. The co-chairs for 2017/2018 are Dr Stefanie Doebler and Dr Andrew Kirton
