For its three day international conference, the SAMKUL (NRC) project Synchronizing the World invites papers that investigate the problem of multiple temporalities and their synchronization in the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment world. We define synchronization as the process by which the Enlightenment notion of progress, a temporal concept, was made global through the processes of colonialism and globalization.
Abstracts for 20 minute papers are invited on these topics
