Edward Reynolds (2017) Description of membership and enacting membership


A great paper just came across my feed from Edward Reynolds (bias, he was a CA/MCA mentor for me).
He describes the ways that powerlifters orient to seeing-the-lift and being a team.  He also uses online data to investigate the enactment of membership categories such as “creep” in the gym environment.

You’ll find the article in Journal of Pragmatics:
