An Ethnography of Household Energy Demand in the UK : Everyday Temporalities of Digital Media Usage Hardback
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Anthropology of Sustainability series
This book challenges the ways we think about human agency by looking at the creativity, ethics, and capacities for social transformation that are embedded in simple actions of "doing".
Stemming from ethnographic research with families in the United Kingdom as part of a wider interdisciplinary project looking at domestic energy demand, this book probes some mundane approaches to time-such as spontaneity, anticipation, and "family time"-and the ways in which they extend ethical imaginations, create new forms of sociality, and engender human agency.
