Abstract

“I’m sorry, we simply don’t have time, we are pushed for time and we need to make time” – such were the (approximated) words of Professor Judy Wajcman at the start of the SO230 Digital Technology, Speed and Culture trip to the British Museum. The LSE course is concerned with the ways in which technology has shaped society, and the focus of the trip, would you believe, was time; clocks, to be more precise. The British Museum, it turns out, has rooms full of them – something that we learnt as we were hurried down into one of the basement rooms by Oliver Cooke, a curator of horology at the museum.
