Temporariness (John Kinsella, Russell West Pavlov)


Apos;Temporariness' is a scandal in our culture of monumentalism and its persistent search for permanence and eternal life. Temporarinessthe time of the ephemeral and the performative, the time of speech, the time of nature and its constant changeshas little cultural purchase in the machine of the 'contemporary'. In this volume, two practitioners and theoreticians of time, space and the written/spoken word, embrace the notion of temporarinessseeing in it a site for a renewal of ways of thinking about ourselves, our language, our society and our environment. This collage of fragmentary genres approaches the notion of mitigated presence, mobilizing contingency to build an atlas of intersections seeking to pay attention to our own temporariness as the site of conceptual and ethical responsibility.more

English is a West Germanic language that arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and spread into what was to become south-east Scotland under the influence of the Anglian medieval kingdom of Northumbria. Following the economic, political, military, scientific, cultural, and colonial influence of Great Britain and the United Kingdom from the 18th century, via the British Empire, and of the United States since the mid-20th century, it has been widely dispersed around the world, become the leading language of international discourse, and has acquired use as lingua franca in many regions. It is widely learned as a second language and used as an official language of the European Union and many Commonwealth countries, as well as in many world organizations. It is the third most natively spoken language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.
