INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SPACING & TIMING: Rethinking globalization &
Palermo, Italy: 1st- 3rd November 2001
Conference Committee: BRUNO LATOUR, ANTHONY HOPWOOD, NIGEL THRIFT
CALL for PAPERS
This conference seeks to bring together academics from different
disciplinary domains to discuss two of the key resources and creations of
organizations: space and time. Rather than taking space and time as a normal
feature of an organization existing per se, the conference aims to examine
them as achievements which require many practical tools, technologies and
practices to exist and be sustained. Hence the verb forms: spacing and
We welcome papers and extended abstracts which seek to explore the
theoretical and empirical issues related to the above themes from a wide
range of disciplines and approaches. The following issues provide an
indication of some of the topics you may wish to examine:
- The fabrication of multiple times, spaces, and actants, and the role of
inscriptions and standardised practices in this process of fabrication.
- The maintenance of certain standards and constants and their role in
creating current notions of space and time (e.g. the delegation of
measurement and categorization to different forms of instrumentation).
- The role of practical tools in achieving organizations, and in particular
how different 'spacings' are achieved and how faster 'timings' are produced.
- The desire to achieve transportation of information, without deformation.
- Globalisation and notions of space and time within our 'networked'
