Disturbing professional practice discourse: Re: writing practices

Sheridan Linnell, Debbie Horsfall

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)


    From a sociological and poststructural viewpoint, professional practice discourse is a productive set of relations that makes practice possible, including many progressive, supportive and creative ways of practising professionally. At the same time, even progressive iterations of the discourse tend to reflect and sustain already established power relationships and limit the possibilities of thinking / doing “otherwise” (Foucault, 2000).
