The Spatiolegal Production of Emotions at Work

(p.239) 10 At Work in the Nomosphere
The Expanding Spaces of Law

Stanford University Press

This chapter introduces to legal geography a rich conception of personhood and the social processes of subjectification. It asks how critical attention to emotions (and especially governing emotions and governing through emotions), to psychodynamics, and to critical organizational studies might enhance our understanding of the spatio-legal. The primary foci of investigation are the spatio-legal (nomospheric) constitutions of work, the relation of working-for, and the contemporary American workplace. Using these to explore the production and maldistribution of social suffering, the chapter offers a provisional response to the question: what is legal geography good for?

Keywords:   emotions, employment relation, law, nomosphere, relational space, social suffering, spatialization, work
