Summary In this chapter, we engage with de Certeau’s neglected onto-epistemology in order to examine research writing practices as everyday practice. First, in a discussion of de Certeau’s characterisation of practice, we tease out three, interrelated ideas: practice as productive; practice as emergent; and the character of the tactical practitioner. We then apply this view of practice to the field of social research and knowledge production, in particular, discussing the strategic, place-making operations that characterise research writing conventions. We do this to raise questions about how the project of social inquiry might be reconceptualised as a mode of operating on the world, and to suggest potential trajectories of a research practice that—moving beyond representational purposes and claims—is openly an advocacy research.
