The Study of Time

The Study of Time is a series of peer-reviewed volumes of select collected essays invited after each triennial conference.  Time in Variance, Volume XVII from the 2019 Conference in Los Angeles is now available.

This interdisciplinary volume of essays explores how the notion of time varies across disciplines by examining variance as a defining feature of temporalities in cultural, creative, and scholarly contexts. Featuring a President`s Address by philosopher David Wood, it begins with critical reassessments of J.T. Fraser`s hierarchical theory of time through the lens of Anthropocene studies, philosophy, ecological theory, and ecological literature; proceeds to variant narratives in fiction, video games, film, and graphic novels; and concludes by measuring time`s variance with tools as different as incense clocks and computers, and by marking variance in music, film, and performance art.
