Yes, I agree with what you say. I guess I used the word change where I meant development. So I am going to change my question: 

What do and could do researchers concerned with development (social, personal) with EM. 

You recently shared with us a beautiful book on the topic of development. How does EM feature in it?

Hi Alfredo,

I’ve always thought that EM deals very well with change, because it does not treat stasis as the norm. EM is the study of the methods that people (actants) employ to create and sustain order, various kinds of order. Creating and sustaining order always requires change.

I personally find ethnomethodology EM fascinating and a powerful approach to stick the realities of social life; but I always wondered what does EM do with questions of change.
