An endless crowd of people viewed from behind showing just the backs of heads. The image fades to grey at the base and yellow text reads 'Publics & Practices'

Publics & Practices

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.
