Emotion, Feeling, Affect, Work
Dec 15th 4pm
UEL Docklands (EB 1.07)
Following a trajectory from the brawny body-machine couplings of the Taylorist factory to the supposed ‘post-Taylor’ cognitive workers and attention engines of the knowledge society; emotions, feelings, and affect have arguably remained a constant, yet under-scrutinized, factor of the management of labour. Indeed, recent interest in the colonization of emotions, feelings, and affect in the workplace perhaps misses the long history of feely managerial strategies.
