CALL FOR STREAM LEADERS AND PROPOSALS
5TH INTERNATIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON TIME PERSPECTIVES
13th – 17th July, 2020, University of Applied Administrative Sciences NRW, Cologne, Germany
Time and time perception is a central concept for a wide range of social and natural sciences. The perspectives on time are rather heterogeneous in different disciplines and need a broader framing. The International Time Perspectives Conference has provided an arena for within discipline and interdisciplinary discourse, interconnecting different streams and schools in the study of time since 2007. We welcome contributions from psychology and other social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, and the humanities, including anthropology, philosophy, and political science, among others. We also aim to broaden the scope of our discussion by supporting interactions with other disciplines like, for example, the arts, urban studies, gender or literature studies, economics, design, and information technology, just to name a few.
The conference is organized as a collection of streams with additional workshops and common key note lectures. The conveners of the streams can work rather autonomously, inviting researchers in their area to submit their work. Therefore, the convener teams should include at least one well established and experienced researcher. There will also be a general stream, where the authors can submit individual high quality papers directly to the conference convenors and a large poster session. All individual papers, posters and stream proposals will be a subject to a full peer review process.
The responsibilities of the stream conveners include the following:
Potential Topics of Interest
We are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to time research. Streams might include following areas: Our everyday experience, understanding and perception of time; temporal practices of individuals, groups, societies or cultures; time perceptions; mental time travel; inter-temporal choices and decision-making; temporal cultures and socialization; cross-cultural time research; neural correlates of time perception; near-death time experience; clinical implications of time perspective; procrastination; the history of time taking; biographical work and time perspective, time management; time in business, time lack, inequality of time, social status and time use, gendered time practices; evaluation of time use; work-life-balance and conflicts; subjective understandings of time; education and time, career success and time orientation; considerations of future consequences, hope; instruments and methods for measurement of temporal psychology constructs; power and time use; acceleration, pace of time, rhythms and time structure, flow; chronotypes; resonance experience; (re-)construction of the past; mindfulness and time, boredom and the length of time; biographical patterns; time in the construction of identity.
Although long, this list of topics is intended to be suggestive rather than exhaustive. Contributors may choose to draw on material from a wide range of empirical spheres and/or theoretical perspectives or artistic work.
