Synchronizing the World: Historic Times, Globalized Times, Anthropogenic Times
An International Conference at the Department of Cultural Studies and Oriental Languages in June 2017
The SAMKUL project Synchronizing the World invites to a three day international conference to investigate the problem of multiple temporalities and their synchronization in the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment world. We define synchronization as the process by which the Enlightenment notion of progress, a temporal concept, was made universal through the processes of colonialism and globalization.
The conference will be held at the University of Oslo, Campus Blindern in auditorum 2 and 3 at the Sophus Bugge building, Niels Henrik Abels vei 36.
Further information on conference program will be updated shortly.
Call for papers (deadline 25 February)
