Thomas Allen

Fifteen Eighty Four


Author: Thomas Allen

Thomas Allen's academic training is in American literature, but his current research interests include, broadly, the cultural history of temporality, including both the mechanics of timekeeping and the theory and philosophy of time, material culture studies, and political theory and literature. Recently, he edited Time and Literature, a collection of twenty essays by leading scholars on topics from time and aesthetics to queer temporalities and more (Cambridge University Press, 2018), and he is currently completing a book manuscript on time and vitalism, the theory of the agency of the nonhuman world.
