Using two classics of practice theory, this project widens the scope of Science and Technology Studies (STS) for investigating media and publication practices in the humanities and social sciences. This is achieved on three levels: 1) through a comparison of Garfinkel's and Wittgenstein's complementary practice theories, 2) through a socio-technological contextualized history of editing Wittgenstein's writings and 3) through a representation of writing practices in a digital edition of Garfinkel's early Ethnomethodology.
