The Affective Breaches
A Political Ethnography of Bail Hearings
Through a six-month ethnographic fieldwork into a Canadian District Court (Québec), this article reveals the ambivalent nature in Bail hearing. The aim is to understand how the moral evaluations of the relations between the accused and their «bail» takes place into the neoliberal and managerial orientations of the everyday penal treatment of deviance, participating in the construction of discrediting emotional and affective breaches.
