Resource authors: Kevin Birth

A new chapter from Kevin K. Birth based on his keynote lecture at Utopias, Futures and Temporalities Symposium 2015. He discusses the tensions generated by the global distribution of Western timekeeping and shows the relationship between the values celebrated in calendars and the rhetorical strategies used by nations in two very different international debates: climate change and the leap second.
