I am very grateful for the opportunity to take part of the EAP3 workshop last week and I am eager to know more about the founding parents of EAP. Thank you for inspiring me to take up practice theory in my own research!
Herewith, I'd like to start a thread on the blind spots in EAP. As Neil Thompson mentioned during the introduction that EAP is based on great works that have been published in the past, coming from different streams of research. However, are there some works that may be interesting to look into that may be overlooked at the moment?
What first comes to my mind is Alasdair MacIntyre (After Virtue p. 187) who uses the concept of a practice and links it with virtues in his work. Maybe this could be an interesting practice approach to study social entrepreneuring? Nicolini (2012) does shortly (p. 84) touch upon it in 'practice theory, work, & organization'. But MacIntyre was not really discussed within the EAP community in Vaxjo nor was it covered in preliminary results of the review of EAP works that Thompson and colleagues presented in Vaxjo.
In other words, this is an invitation to extend the list of informing works. (Maybe this thread can be accompanied by other threads where we discuss each parent/work in more detail how it could add value to EAP?
