Between Acceleration and Slowness


Eds. Anne Fuchs and Jonathan Long,

This interdisciplinary volume explores the social, psychological, and historical impact of acceleration through the medium of culture. Current sociological theories of acceleration and theoretical contributions to modernity’s transformation of temporality are set in critical dialogue with a wide range of perspectives that illuminate expressions of and cultural responses to acceleration in literature, film, the visual arts, architecture, new media, and popular culture.
