In: Time and Trace: Multidisciplinary Investigations of Temporality

Abstract

The article examines the interplay of time’s variance and time’s invariance in Richard McGuire’s graphic novel Here by studying narrative and visual constructions of hereness as an intrinsic part of places in relation to their ever-changing timescapes. It argues that the intensity and ingenuity of McGuire’s narrative resides in the seamless bridging of time and space that generates multiple, heterogeneous dimensionalities that become simultaneously present. By engaging the reader’s interaction, Here makes full use of imaginative modality and mobility to construct a narrative space that becomes temporally charged, a space in which the past and the future meet in the moving now.

This interdisciplinary volume of essays explores how the notion of time varies across disciplines by examining variance as a defining feature of temporalities in cultural, creative, and scholarly contexts. Featuring a President’s Address by philosopher David Wood, it begins with critical reassessments of J.T. Fraser’s hierarchical theory of time through the lens of Anthropocene studies, philosophy, ecological theory, and ecological literature; proceeds to variant narratives in fiction, video games, film, and graphic novels; and concludes by measuring time’s variance with tools as different as incense clocks and computers, and by marking variance in music, film, and performance art.
