The concept of embodiment has been identified by Nagatomo as knowledge residing within and through the body. In the practice field, embodiment and corporeal information are central to understanding practice as a social site, where bodies are viewed as referencing the nature of practice social site , the performance of work and the demonstration of practical- reasoning and know-how.
In highlighting the role of the body, Schatzki , p. The notion that the bodies are central to knowing, suggests that they are central to knowledge construction and not just an absent or silenced presence Shilling, In the following section we describe our various studies, which draw attention to the body and embodied information practices as sources of information and sites of knowledge.
For Lloyd, the corporeal modality is central to the formation of an information landscape and acts to entwine social and epistemic sites, enabling actors to become emplaced ; The concept is therefore central to understanding the enactment of information practice. Embodiment has been explored and connected to information practices and information work in research which explored how information literacy emerged in the workplace Lloyd, Embodiment was conceptualised as being in place and knowing the information landscape and how this landscape was shaped by the textual, social and corporeal modalities of the lived experience.

As sources of information and sites of knowledge, fire fighter bodies were described as reflecting the actioned, reflective, institutional and non-normative sources of information that are inscribed on the body over time, representing both the practice and practising of work. Medical settings provide strong evidence of embodied information practices. Embodied information practices can be constructed around the performance of work or around disease.
The importance of corporeal information and the role of embodied information practice in nurses were highlighted by Bonner and Lloyd Nurses recognised that it was not only their own bodies which acted as a source of information, but also the bodies of other nurses and of patients.
Over time and through practice, nurses began to recognise the important sensory cues about renal care that came from the bodies of patients, and they began to trust their sense of smell and touch Bonner and Lloyd, Accessing the experiential and nuanced local knowledge of others is an important aspect of connecting and developing embodied information practices in the everyday resettlement process for refugees.
To effectively transition and resettle requires those in transition to recognise and apply a suite of activities that will aide access to information in order to become situated and emplaced. In this context, learning to listen and observe, and developing watchfulness become critical corporeal activities that can provide opportunities to access information. The ability to recognise visual affordances is especially important to groups who have limited communication or literacy skills.
Observation provided access to tacit and contingent forms of knowledge, which were often hidden in everyday activities.

An everyday occurrence was knowing when to do certain routine things such as putting out the garbage. To undertake this task required local knowledge that was not easily accessed by the non-English speaking residents. This activity forms part of the everyday information practices that support the settling in of newcomers by connecting them to the everyday activities of the community. Their professional lives are based on the ability to embody their knowledge: they need to manifest their understanding in the physical world, as physical actions in physical space.
Embodiment was important not only for their sense-making as individuals but also in allowing them to act as an embodied signifier Goffman, for their audience. Several participants described how working with and being mentored by more experienced actors was central to their learning:. Field archaeology seemed a promising case study with which to challenge the conventional wisdom that academic research is a principally cerebral activity.
