Session Information

Description: What resources does the novel offer for representing “shadowtime,” the “feeling of living in two distinctly different temporal scales simultaneously”? The word was recently coined to describe life in the Anthropocene, and this session explores how the novel’s long history informs shadowtime’s layering of timescales and temporalities.
