The Popular Pursuit of DIY: the Role of Labour Cost in an Actor Network.

Project Details


This project seeks to explain the popular growth in DIY activity and the role of calculative technologies in that process. The project draws on empirical sources from the 1950s, a key moment in which DIY was embraced by the mass populace. Through an ANT (actor network theory) lens, the empirical material illustrates how several diverse actors came together through a process of translation, mobilising a network of forces to promote DIY activity.
