The Politics of Emotion at Work.
Exploring the politics of emotion in the consulting room and organisations
Through a series of images, I will be looking at emotion as communicative,relational and political.I will argue that our feeling states are highly attuned to and co-created with those around us. Rather than conceptualise emotion as the province of the individual, I will explore a relational perspective in which dynamics of inclusion, exclusion and performance may become embodied in the consulting room and in organisations as affectual experience which we come to call emotion.
