The Politics of Time in our Everyday Worlds: Who Controls your Time?
Lecture by Kerry Daly, PhD
University of Guelph

In a culture that exalts speed and efficiency, time has become more precious and as a result, more contentious. What does it means to possess and control time. What are the sources of conflict and competing interests in relation to time and what processes and strategies do we use in our efforts to gain a greater sense of control over time in our lives.
