Extension for Abstracts: Regulating Time Conference
The AHRC Regulating Time network - a collaboration between the Department (Sian Beynon-Jones) and Kent Law School (Emily Grabham) - is holding an international conference The New Legal Temporalities: Discipline and Resistance across Domains of Time 8-10 September 2016, University of Kent.
Due to a number of requests to send in 'late' abstracts for this conference (i.e. encounters with temporal resistance!), the organisers are extending the deadline to 1 April 2016.
Keynote: Carol Greenhouse (Anthropology, Princeton)
- Michelle Bastian (Edinburgh College of Art)
- Sarah Keenan (Law, Birkbeck)
- Justin Richland (Anthropology, Chicago)
Writer in residence: Annabel Lyon (prize-winning author of historical novels The Sweet Girl and The Golden Mean)
Law and governance are intimately entangled with time. This international conference will explore time’s fraught relationship with law, governance and ordering: the use of time in projects of discipline, the significance of time to resistance, the creation of new temporal horizons and experiences through technological innovation, as well as other themes.
The deadline for abstracts has been extended to 1 April 2016. For further information on streams and how to submit abstracts, please see the original call for papers here.
