From Community Studies to Communities of Practice

In this book I focus on a series of objects and practices in order to highlight the complexity of such relationships. Cows, cheese and roads are the unexpected protagonists of my analysis, each in turn being the hybrid end-results of practices involving skill and technology, production and consumption, connectivity and locality. Throughout the book, I take the notion of 'skill' as a privileged locus of identity-construction, as a complex of aesthetic involvement and moral stances, of strategies of belonging and expert practices. I shall analyse the notion of skill with particular reference to skilled visions' (Grasseni 2007a) exercised in skilled practice. Vision and practice will be contextualised within the processes of the technologisation, standardisation and regimentation of dairy breeding and cheese-making in the modern day Italian Alps.
