  1. Sense and Sensibility Affective Labour in Scholarly Collaboration Stefan Dormans Smiljana Antonijevic Sally Wyatt 4S Annual Meeting, Tokyo August 28, 2010

  2. Outline Premise Theme Focus

  3. Sources • Theoretical debates about immaterial and affective labour and knowledge economy(Marx 1861-63; Castells 1996; Hardt and Negri 2000; Terranova 2004; Fraser and Puwar 2008; Gill 2010) • Ethnographic study on collaboratories in social and economic history (Dormans and Kok2010) • Our own collaborative experience in writing this paper (reflections, emails, conversations, drafts)
