We are currently inviting applications for a two day interdiscplinary workshop exploring the interconnections between time and community.
To support the development of a more co-ordinated research approach to the interconnections between time and community, the Temporal Belongings project is hosting an interdisciplinary residential workshop, which will provide an opportunity for a broad range of researchers to explore how time is involved in the production, maintenance, complication, destruction and/or disavowal of connectivity within and between communities.
Despite the complicated and wide-ranging role of temporality in some of the most pressing questions about social mechanisms of connectivity and belonging, the research on ‘time’ and ‘community’ remains fragmented. The aim of this workshop then is to provide a space for researchers to become more familiar with each others work, to map out current intersections and to support the development of new work.
Our confirmed keynote speaker is Professor Carol Greenhouse.
