Making Time #sssi #time #sociology

On the opinion pages of the New York Times Anna North recently wrote about techniques people use to make time, in particular in situations when people face conflicting goals and interests. Her discussion of academic research that uses experiments with people in situation when their goals are put into conflict arrives at similar conclusions as Michael Flaherty in his book “The Textures of Time” that was reviewed in Symbolic Interaction by Michael Spivey in 2012 (Vol 35 (3)).

A review of a related book Ethnographies of Youth and Temporality: Time Objectified by Anne Line Dalsgaard and colleagues (Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 2014) will be published in Symbolic Interaction shortly.
