Abstract: A conference on The Future of Feelings (13 June 2008) was one of many (and continuing) attempts by the organisers to encourage understanding of the emotional animation of sociality and action. This extensive introduction discusses what were the emotional markers existing when the delegates met to contemplate the future of feelings and what the contributors suggest might be our part in making and re-making the climate.

Keywords: feelings; emotion work; working with emotions; emotional labour.
