Can people live together with different time frames and calendars? Is a common time frame essential for a sense of common belonging and identity, or does different time reckoning mean social breakdown and schism? This workshop explores these questions from theoretical and historical perspectives, ranging from late antiquity to the modern world. Speakers include Kevin Birth (New York City), Sarah Foot (Oxford).
