Several disciplines have taken a ‘temporal turn’ in recent decades. In other words, they have begun to acknowledge that time is bound up with forms of human agency. But making sense of temporality can be challenging. This event will help doctoral students to grapple with the subject. It will speak to the following questions:

  • How do understandings of time shape our sense of self?
  • What are the best conceptual tools for studying time?
  • How can cross-disciplinary work help us to better understand experiences of time?

The event is open to doctoral students from all disciplines, and participants do not require any prior knowledge or understanding. One session will allow students to present posters on relevant subjects.

To register for the event, please email and indicate if you are a funded student. Travel bursaries will be offered to unfunded students on a first-come-first-served basis.

Registration deadline: 1 June 2024

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Funded by Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership and the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
