Different concepts of time and them clashing are a central aspect of colonial contexts. This includes questions of temporality as well as historicity and is often embedded in broader processes of negotiating power. This course will reflect on what so far has been discussed in research under the umbrella of time regimes. It will introduce various ways to grasp time regimes theoretically to then turn to case studies. Featuring examples from Africa to Samoa and Latin America serve to exemplify the application of such approaches and ask what new perspectives they might offer.
