There seems to be a widening gap between planning as it is actually practiced and the kind of concerns, values and processes which planning theorists might hope would be driving the profession. Theorists have not caused this, but it nevertheless raises questions about whether the expected roles, identities and narratives accorded to research are consistent with those most likely to bear down on practice. This chapter draws on tools from ANT to explore processes of subject formation within planning research and how these are governed. It raises critical questions about how planning as a discipline anticipates its users and its social value.
