Location:Room K271, Middlesex University, White Hart Lane, London N17 8HR

This symposium will address the critical relationships between three main areas of current research and debate: (i) the possibility and form of a post-Hegelian thinking of history, (ii) the challenge of the neo-Bergsonian and other 'singular' philosophies of time to all thought of 'history', and (iii) the theorization of the globally intersecting temporalities of capital, communicational and political forms.
