Join Dr. Sarah Sharma, Associate Professor in the Department of Communications Studies at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, for a reading from her book, In the Meantime: Temporality and Cultural Politics. The world is getting faster. Sharma engages with that assumption in this critical inquiry into the temporalities of everyday life and argues that both “speed up” and “slow down” often function as a form of social control necessary to contemporary global capitalism.
