As part of the research cluster on Temporalities of Data, I am curious about research on time and temporality. In Edinburgh, the Temporal Belongings network created a wonderful conference around the Social Life of Time (SloTime) which brought together scholars from a range of disciplines to discuss the politics, poetics and powers of time. Judy Wajcman, Charles W. Mills, Paul Huebener and Jackie Sumell were the keynotes.As they ask,
Who belongs in particular accounts of time, and who is excluded? What are the effects and affects of various social understandings of temporality? What are the politics of time? How are power and legitimacy operationalised through temporal frameworks? What might it mean to transform dominant conceptions of time?
