Researching the History of Kairos/Occasio from the Classical to the Modern Age















In line with the recent ‘temporal turn’ in a number of related fields across the arts and humanities, this group studies a specific idea of time, kairos (also occasio and its translation into the various vernaculars), from its earliest mention in Greek literature to more modern (or even post-modern) ideas regarding exceptional time from across the globe. We aim to bring together researchers from classics, gender studies, history, literature, philosophy, politics, sociology and theology to better understand the history and development of this important concept, analysing its various manifestations across a broad range of sources. By sharing our work through seminars, workshops, conferences, special issue journals and online, we hope to contribute significantly to the study of each of these individual fields as well as to temporal studies as a whole.
