Summary
"Examines how cultural narratives of time are connected to ecological disruption. The environmental crisis is, in many ways, a crisis of time. The demands of late capitalism have driven us to influence time through various means: artificial lights, long-distance flights, extended lifespans, and more. Yet, as Paul Huebener shows, by breaking our clocks, we also unwittingly break others. From the 3 a.m. calls of songbirds to the rapid dying of coral reefs to the shifting pace of extreme weather events, the patterns of the natural world are changing. For humans and other members of the ecosphere, time will soon run out, if it hasn’t already. Drawing from works of fiction and poetry, from studies of circadian rhythms and the revival of ancient frozen bacteria to punch clocks and prison sentences, to Indigenous grave markers that count time in centuries rather than seconds, Nature’s Broken Clocks provides the tools to reread the problem of time keeping. Huebener’s work develops a new practice of “critical temporal literacy” that examines how cultural narratives of time are connected to the problems of ecological disruption and what we might do to fix them."--
