5-6 June at University of Turku, with Melissa Gregg and Tony D. Sampson as keynotes:
The idea of this two-day symposium is to bring together researchers and thinkers to discuss different areas of affective capitalism. We want to challenge affective capitalism on its own ground. To do this we will analyse specific examples of affective capitalism at work and map its defining factors. We are seeking new ways to understand affective capitalism through its ambivalences and complexities. At the same time, we ask how we could resist it and develop alternatives for it.
Program will soon be available at http://affectivecapitalism.wordpress.com/
