Time & temporality
In, around and about
LET'S THINK TOGETHER
I am a free-range social scientist (Ph.D.) who believes that the development of a healthy, sustainable future for all of us, requires time to think, meet and practice different modes of being. My work revolves around issues of time, agency and organization: how we humans can see and work with different temporalities than those that dominate our current, efficiency-driven world, and how such work can make us meet all the other life on our planet in much more caring, resourceful, innovative and co-generative ways.
"...The question then becomes what it might mean for organizations to develop and embrace such temporal and relational alternatives – whether it is possible in current and future organizing to develop forms of agency that rewrite the role of humans in the world, in modes that meet the challenges of the Anthropocene."
