Recent book publication: German Edition of Harold Garfinkel`s „Studies in Ethnomethodology“, Edited by Erhard Schüttpelz, Anne Warfield Rawls and Tristan Thielmann

Harold Garfinkel’s work “Studies in Ethnomethodology” once revolutionized the social sciences by throwing conventional theories overboard and making everyday human practices the subject of research. His thesis is: Social reality is created by everyday practice. Garfinkel focused on routinized practices, that are usually taken for granted. The book, published in the USA in 1967, has long been one of the great classics of the social sciences. With this volume, the groundbreaking study is finally available in a German translation.

German translation by Brigitte Luchesi.
