The effect of affect
This open issue features articles by Sofia Laine, Alexander Styhre, Oliver Mallett and Robert Wapshott, and Sam Dallyn. Each article highlights in its own way how an attentiveness to affect helps us to deepen our understanding of the ways in which organization and the political intertwine. This can be seen in relation to the micro-practices of organizations; to the compelling ideologies that inscribe our workplace lives; and to the methods adopted by organization studies scholars. The papers in this issue add to debates on the ways in which affect and politics are inextricably linked, both within ephemera and beyond this journal.
