Megan Snowe is taking part in the next I Had This Feeling reading group at London’s Res. on September 22.
The programme is focused on emotion and affect theory, the emotional economy, and the sensual impacts of language. They will discuss ‘The Managed Heart: Commercialization of Human Feeling’ by Arlie Russell Hochschild, who coined the term ’emotional labor’, on their next meeting.
Alicia Grandley’s article ‘Emotion Regulation in the Workplace: A New Way to Conceptualize Emotional Labor‘ will also be referred to as it gives a brief overview of theories about emotions and the workplace from 1983 through the late-90s.
New York-based artist Snowe is currently resident at London’s The White Building for SPACE Art + Technology’s OpenPROCESS #7 programme, where she is researching “emotion-as-substance with words, actions, drawings and substances (provided), co-creating enhanced issues, more thorough than before.”
