Expertise Summary

My main interest is in the politics of time and temporality. I am involved with two current interdisciplinary projects funded by the British Academy -- Wetland Times and Anthropocene (A)syncronicities -- that address issues of (possible) temporal tension and dislocation between 'political times', on one hand, and the time pressures and horizons of various environmental and 'planetary' issues, on the other.
