About the Topic

This Theme Group studies the different connections between knowledge, commercialisation, emotions and the economy. By looking at the role of affects in the commodification of knowledge, members of this group highlight the role that bodies and emotions play in knowledge societies, while also stressing the performative aspects of knowledge. Furthermore, it allows us to overcome the divide between useful knowledge and the aesthetics of knowledge. One of the central concepts of this working group is that of 'affective economies', a term that highlights the personal and affective aspects of knowledge and the market.
