Alex, Jen and I had a great first team meeting this morning. Mostly discussing how we want to work together (including what kinds of time frameworks we will use), as well as some initial planning for our Methods Festival. We're becoming more aware of just how slippery 'time' is as a topic and are looking forward to developing interesting ways of exploring perceptions of time in our archive research and fieldwork.
I'm also just beginning to set up this website and looking for photos that capture the idea of the 'new economics'. Any suggestions just contact me.
Exploring the time of the new economics
If clock time helped build industrial capitalism & the idea of a speeded-up, networked time supports late capitalism, what kind of time would support alternative, sustainable economies?
