Samenvatting

This edited volume focuses on the intersection of time and globalization, as manifested across a variety of economic, political, cultural, and environmental contexts. Since David Harvey's influential characterization of globalization as time-space compression , ample research has looked at the spatial aspect of the phenomenon, yet few have focused on globalization's temporal aspects. Meanwhile, other publications have analysed problems of speed, acceleration, and the commodification of time, but while it often serves as the implicit or explicit backdrop for these studies of time, globalization is not investigated as a problem or a question in its own right. In response, this volume develops these conversations to consider how time shapes globalization, and how globalization affects our experience of time. The interplay between varying aspects of the human experiences of time and globalization requires the type of interdisciplinary approach that this volume takes. The contributors advance an understanding of global time(s) as an arena of contestation, with social, political, ecological, and cultural implications for human and other lives. In considering the diverse valences of time and globalization, they illuminate problems as well as possibilities. Topics covered include emerging infectious diseases, temporal sovereignty, worker exploitation and resistance, chronobiology, energy politics, activism and hope, and literary and cinematic representations of counter-temporalities, offering a rich and varied account of global times. This volume will be of great interest to students and researchers from a range of disciplines, including anthropology, cultural studies, globalization, international relations, literary studies, political science, social theory, and sociology.

Recensie(s)

'This vibrant collection provides a nuanced, multifaceted exploration of the intricacies of the temporal and the global, especially in relation to human imagination and sociality. A must for scholars from across the disciplines interested in processes and practices connected to globalization.' - Imre Szeman, Canada Research Chair in Cultural Studies, University of Alberta, Canada 'Because it opens up and deepens the ways we can think critically of time and temporality - and shows why doing so is more urgent than ever - this volume is essential reading.' - Robert Latham, York University, Toronto, Canada
