The 1st PARSE Biennial Research Conference on TIME was held from November 4-6, 2015 at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden
Time arguably has always been at the centre of the research initiatives of the natural sciences, of philosophy and of the many different practices of history and social criticism. However, time also occupies a central place for the curiosity and attention of artist researchers across all the arts. The intensification of the question of time has, in recent years, prompted some to speak of a “temporal turn” across the disciplines. This conference seeks to bring together a range of researchers, drawn mainly from the artistic fields but also inviting researchers from across all disciplines to consider questions with respect to the practices, processes and perturbations of time.
Peer review process
We received more than 500 abstracts. The proposals were peer-reviewed by a peer review panel that included The PARSE Advisory & Journal Editorial Boards, and the PARSE Working Group.
Each proposal was reviewed by three members drawn from the panel with reference to:
(i) relevance to the overarching thematics of TIME
(ii) potential in developing a dialogue across the disciplines
(iii) originality of contribution
All contributions will be recorded for archive purposes.
A selection of contributions will be further developed in consultation with, and by permission of, the authors for publication through the PARSE Journal in the autumn of 2016.
