Summary
Time forms such an important part of our lives that it is rarely thought about. In this book the author moves beyond the time of clocks and calendars in order to study time as embedded in social interactions, structures, practices and knowledge, in artefacts, in the body, and in the environment. The author looks at the many different ways in which time is experienced, in relation to the various contexts and institutions of social life. Among the topics discussed are time in the areas of health, education, work, globalization and environmental change. Through focus on the complexities of social time she explores ways of keeping together what social science traditions have taken apart, namely, time with reference to the personal - public, local-global and natural-cultural dimensions of social life
