Abstract

Our paper draws on a research project funded by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council that explores work/family/technology figurations and practices in the home.1 The study investigates how boundaries are being made
between work and family in everyday practices, and how technologies are implicated in constituting these boundaries. In doing so, the project does not treat the social and the technological as separate, but rather as mutually constitutive. This paper focuses specifically on the theoretical and methodological framework that we developed for the project.
