Critical theorists have long turned their attention to the question of management. They have investigated the form and function of training manuals, techniques of organising bodies, cultivating minds, guiding interactions, and navigating institutional spaces. We wish to turn this attention to the present, to the particularity and complexity of contemporary institutional forms. This symposium takes up this challenge through the examination of actual experiences of managing and of being managed. It questions how management mediates between capital and control, how the rules of management are developed, mediated, and employed, and what the impact of these practices on critical thought is, can be, and needs to be.
