Tempus Fugit: Time and Temporality in Victorian Britain [08/24/2010 - 08/28/2010]

From late Romantic nostalgia over the passage of time to the fifty-year long debate over the issue of Standard Mean Time, time and temporality seem to have been major concerns in Victorian culture. They affected everyday life in a literal sense through transport schedules, time distribution networks, factory working hours, as well as in a metaphorical sense, shaping the moral drive to carefully manage one's time. As a modern tool for control and self-control, time demanded new definitions that supported and/or were resisted by new ontologies. The preoccupation with time and temporality also informed the arts.
