Time, Space, Discourse: Ontologies of Modernity

>

Thursday, June 10, 1:30-6:00

Conference Centre, Room 4, Lancaster University

The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.

L.P. Hartley

Organisers:

Tim Hickman (T.A.Hickman@Lancaster.ac.uk) and Paolo Palladino (P.Palladino@Lancaster.ac.uk).

*There is no pre-registration or fee for this event*

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Institute for Advanced Study are hosting an afternoon workshop on the meanings, relationships and roles of time and space in the contemporary formation of cultures and communities. It will focus more precisely on the epistemological and ontological problems that arise in triangulating discourse, time and space within 'modernity', that is to say, within the domains of the 'here and now' and the 'there and then.'
