Abstract [en]

This paper studies emotions as an important aspect of teacher collegiality. It aims to investigate emotionally charged aspects of teacher collegiality in teachers' stories about colleagues in order to problematize a polarized understanding within this field of research into collegiality as either good or bad. The positioning of teachers in the stories draws on culturally available narratives of teacher's responsibility to: foster and care for students and to engage in the subject they teach. Findings argue for an understanding of teacher collegiality as processes of conflict and consensus that impact on teachers' professional work and development.
