Document Summary

Nuer time (evans-pritchard) - idea that time comes from nature, particularly cattle. Compared to working a job, where you are expected to work for set number of hours, tasks may be completed at any time and leave you with free time. Clock time - current standards of using clocks to tell time. Family workshop vs factory production - industrialization led families to work in factories rather than at home - mass production rather than homemade goods. Alienation - people became isolated from their work when mass production took the stage; no longer part of entire process. Time is often spoken of in linear terms (past present future) Time is expensive - we don"t like to waste time - takes away from work: temporality. How we make sense of time, how we inhabit time, however order events and understand their significances in our lives: nuer time. Nuer are obsessed with the cattle they raise and breed.
