The term “situated knowledge” has two quite distinct disciplinary connections. The first is with a long twentieth-century tradition in studies of knowledge that comes from the margins of society, from black feminist thought,1 from non-mainstream science,2 and from those outside accepted forms of social communication.3 The second connection is with the study of learning that takes place in the process of engaged observation and practice, such as craftwork in silver, or children’s acquisition of language,4 or more recently, computing skills. This latter use is tied closely to studies in tacit knowledge.5
