Temporalities and notions of progress formed in Western modernity have been instrumentalized to structure developments and ordering things. But past and present transformations are too complex to be explained by monocausal and linear narratives of change. In the course of reflecting time and timing, the key concepts of modernist and economic notions of linear historicity have been questioned. The modern conception of History has become just one manifestation within a plurality of histories. We are no longer taking linear time as human universal but are interested in timing trans/formations in the era of globalization, bio- and necropolitics and asymmetrical power relations. The Winter School 2013 discusses and challenges modernist and postmodernist paradigms of temporality from a historical, sociological, cultural and philosophical perspective.
