Welcome to session #3 of the online space Migratory Times, “Temporality & Mobility.”
2020 the world has witnessed major events that have changed the way collectives and individuals relate to time, movement, and space. In this session we invite migratory times visitors to engage in conversations that grapple with insurgency and urgency in a time of global pandemic. As many are compelled to shelter-in-place, class, racial, national and gender labor divides have become more apparent. A central part of ongoing coloniality and the modern economies are the sustaining of oppressive regimes. However, as communities have become disconnected physically, there is an urgency to connect in creative ways, where social change and new imaginaries are part of the public landscape of discourse, politics, and socialities. We invite migratory times visitors to grapple these complexities that shape mobile subjectivities and temporalities in an age of covid-19.
