Abstract

Drawing on call centre work as an example of immaterial labour, this article explores a different way of theorising the subject in order to reconsider our sensory relation to the world. It uses Jean-Luc Nancy's conceptualisation of human subjectivity, apprehended as a motioning between pre-cognitive sensation and meaningful signification. This paper asks whether the call centre can have a stultifying affect upon the agent's capacity to ‘live’. Furthermore, it asks how this dampening is resisted through subtle and vivacious tangents out of routine by those living the labour of the call centre
