Abstract: Employee ‘well-being’ is on the strategic agenda of every university in the UK as part of their people management framework. ‘Well-being’ relates to those feelings which can be spoken, their generation through managerial relationalities and their governance within Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as strategies are drawn up each year to assess departmental performance on this index amongst others, such as student recruitment, research income and student experience. To say, ‘those feelings which can be spoken’ already implicates questions of power, governmentality and affective management because of those feelings that are ruled as out of place and unvoiceable. Chair: Professor Sarah Franklin
