About ‘States Power Emotion’

Welcome to this collaborative Blog.This space will provide a broad forum for critical inquiry into the role and significance of emotion in contemporary societies. We publish stuff that explores links between emotion, state practice and political economy. We are also interested in politics of hope, fear and uncertainty; emotional power & justice; over-rationalized forms of living; modern anxiety, state violence and emotional harm. The thoughts and feelings of individuals reflected here are NOT representative of any particular institution.  

Among other things this Blog will relay matters concerning:

* The role of emotion in state building 

 * Emotional resonances of neoliberalism

 * Emotional power / emotional violence 

* The salience of emotion in legitimating power relations (class, ‘race’ and gender)

 * Revanchism and the politics of vengeance  

 * The traumatizing affects of state violence (symbolic, bureaucratic mental, physical)

 * Technology, culture and emotion 

 Administrators: Roy Coleman, Andrew Kirton and Madeleine Rungius
