News from the Cultural Historical & Activity Theory SIG
Sociocultural and Activity Theory (SAT) SIG has changed the name to Cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT). Sociocultural theory was used in the early days of the movement of Vygotsky’s ideas into America but now the theoretical, methodological and empirical family of theory who trace their lineage to Vygotsky have become known as cultural-historical & activity research. If your research involves the use of CHAT or you have interest in this area, you are welcome to join our SIG and/or participate in our SIG activities, including a series of events, workshops, symposium, reading groups, social network and CHAT Winter/Summer school, as listed in our Newsletter.
