It has explored questions such as:
How have the differing temporalities of hegemonic or macro-structural forces, daily life, generational change, the life cycle, and our place in history changed with globalization? Have risk and various future-oriented practices displaced tradition in globally shaping human imagination and conduct? What effects do temporal acceleration and deceleration have on global inequalities? How does globalization interact with, shape, reveal or conceal non-human temporalities, such as evolutionary or geological time? What is the role of human autonomy in resisting, shaping, and reconstructing dominant temporalities, including those associated with neoliberalism, and challenging their adverse effects? From our Department, Tony Porter has been involved with the project from its start.
