Alex Levant heads the Activity Theory Project – two-year inquiry, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), that aims to trace the development of Activity Theory (AT), an interdisciplinary methodological approach to the study of the origin and development of the mind, identity, and the self. Its core proposition is that these are neither strictly biological nor discursive phenomena, but develop only in the context of specific social practices – activities in which individuals are embedded. The objective of the project is to produce an account of the development of this body of thought and to place it in dialogue with other methods for the study of subjectivity at the intersection of social and political thought and critical media theory.
