Using governmentality to understand subjectification in workplace health promotion

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to contribute to current discussions about criticisms aimed at the analytical concept of governmentality. To do this, I draw on my thesis work, in which the purpose was to explore how “the healthy employee” was constituted in four different workplace health promotion interventions, and how technologies of power and of the self were employed to invite the participants to govern themselves and others. As such, the paper starts with a brief summary of the study, followed by a description of how the concept of governmentality was drawn on in the study. After that review, the paper goes on to address some of the strengths and weaknesses of how the concept was drawn on in this specific work.
