> The concepts of time and space are intrinsic parts of the factual and fictional experience. No matter where (or when) we look at the humanities temporality and spatiality form the basis of our research; implicitly or explicitly. However, questions regarding space and time are often overlooked as potential points of theoretical departure or a basis for methodological tools. The aim of this conference is to explore the possibilities of time and space within the diverse fields of the humanities.
