About Time

Public Lecture Series

In 2012-13, under the auspices of the Institute of Advanced Study, visiting Fellows and Durham researchers are exploring the theme of Time. How has time been imagined in different cultural and historical contexts? How have ideas about time shaped nations and their ‘heritage’? How is temporality experienced and described? And how have technological advances in ways of measuring time changed people’s experiences of it, and enabled different ways of moving through and narrating time and space? These questions, and others, are illuminated in this series of public lectures about time.
