John Tomlinson: Accelerated Life

Cultural Experience and Fast Capitalism

26 May 2010

Are we imagining it – or is life really getting faster? Professor John Tomlinson, of Nottingham Trent University, author of The Culture of Speed: The Coming of Immediacy, demonstrates the acceleration of life, using examples from art, literature, architecture and film. In the industrial era speed was associated with social progress. Now the ever-increasing pace of life is dictated by the lightning shifts of global capital and culture, facilitated by 21st century communications. Rachel Walls, Doctoral Candidate at The University of Nottingham, will lead questions from the audience afterwards.
