Jane Bennett: Marvelling at a World of Vibrant Matter

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


    This chapter explores the possibilities for thinking and analysing that Jane Bennett’s theorising offers. The chapter shows how Bennett’s work with affect and what she calls vibrant matter allows Bennett to reconsider concepts about individuality and agency. I discuss the possibilities that are thereby opened for organizational analysis. Moreover, the chapter explores the characteristics of Bennett’s ways of thinking and writing and unpacks the methodological inspiration that these offer to organizational analysis.
