The Times We Live In

This course looks at changing conceptions of time in the late 20th/early 21st century in the context of globalization. We will survey a range of literary texts, films and social movements (e.g., Slow Food) that explore ideas about temporality, with a focus on the ways in which culture resists and/or supports such trends as acceleration, synchronization and the erosion of boundaries between private and public time.
