This paper outlines a sociology of the everyday approach and its utility for developing from the ground level up our understanding of the ways in which people and communities in contemporary Brunei Darussalam perceive, interpret and negotiate their day-to-day lives and identities. Drawing on several distinct qualitative case studies on aspects of contemporary everyday life from a range of sites across Brunei spanning about the last 10 years, it considers the new angles of vision and scale that such an approach may offer compared to more mainstream inquiry. The paper further details findings on how major concerns of sociology play out in the very episodes of everyday life and seeks to stimulate reflection on the ways in which we approach the social science study of contemporary Brunei.
