Sociologies of Time

Finis Terrae (Latin America) - Finis Terrae (Cile)
The acceleration of social rhythms is a common economic strategy that produces on a daily basis a widespread cult of urgency, eroding the possibility of control by individuals, who instead must cope with a climate of uncertainty and a feeling that the future is impossible to govern. Our relationship with time has been transformed and this has changed the way we interpret experience. Carmen Leccardi examines the temporal cultures of the new millennium and their human consequences, in particular for women and young people, but also looks at possible responses to this crisis and the new lifestyles and knowledge it brings.
