Everyday Life Matters

Chapter 2 explores the social theoretical literature on the everyday, an explicitly eclectic and polyglot group of theoreticians who draw from a wide range of theoretical perspectives such as Marxism, phenomenology, feminist theory, developmental biology, critical theory, and subaltern studies, among others, but without a dogmatic alliance to a particular theoretical perspective. Loosely speaking, these scholars can be seen as working through ideas put forward by pioneering everyday life thinkers Henri Lefebvre and Michel de Certeau and include Mikhail Baktin, Pierre Bourdieu, Fernand Braudel, André Breton, Sigmund Freud, Michael Gardiner, Erving Goffman, Agnes Heller, Ben Highmore, Tim Ingold, Alice Kaplan, Alf Lüdtke, Daniel Miller, Kristin Ross, James Scott, Hans Medick, Michael Sheringham, Dorothy Smith, Raymond Williams, and Susan Willis, among others. Many of the most prominent social theorists discussed in contemporary thought are missing from this list, and this is intentional. Everyday life scholarship highlights the overlooked, not just in human life, but also in the scholarly literature.
