A wide ranging, interdisciplinary exploration of media time and mediated temporalities. The chapters explore the diverse ways in which time is articulated by media technologies, the way time is constructed, represented and communicated in cultural texts, and how it is experienced in different social contexts and environments.  

EMILY KEIGHTLEY Lecturer in Communication and Media Studies in the Department of Social Sciences at Loughborough University, UK, and Assistant Editor of Media, Culture and Society. She has published in the areas of time, memory and everyday life and is currently working on the book Creative Memory with Michael Pickering.
