Mar 20, 2023

Since January 2023, Dr. Michel Alhadeff-Jones (TRC Lab) is a member of the Global Convening Programme "The Times of  Just Transition" funded by the British Academy, in partnership with the University fo Bristol (UK). The aim of this interdisciplinary programme is to explore the role of temporal frames in enabling and impeding democratic and equitable transitions towards sustainable futures.

This programme brings together scholars from six continents and 14 disciplines to transform our understanding of the role of time and timing in producing justice and injustice in sustainability transitions.

Spaces, Times & the Rhythms of Adult Education is a new research symposium series hosted by Dr. Michel Alhadeff-Jones, Dr. Fadia Dakka, and Dr. Gaia Del Negro at the Sunkhronos Institute, running from January to June 2023 online.

Rhythmic intelligence: A new platform for the TRC Lab

Feb 22, 2021

Le Laboratoire Temporalités, Rythmes & Complexité (TRC Lab) dispose désormais d'une nouvelle plateforme bilingue (FR/EN)( présentant un espace de collaboration dédié à l’étude de l’intelligence rythmique et des méthodes utilisées pour développer, les expériences, les connaissances et les compétences auxquelles elle renvoie.

Now available in Paperback: "Time and the Rhythms of Emancipatory Education"

Jan 31, 2019

Since it was published in 2017, Michel Alhadeff-Jones' book Time and the Rhythms of Emancipatory Education encountered a lot of interest (16 reviews have already been published in academic journals and additional reviews are in the pipeline; some extracts are available here). We are therefore very happy to announce that it was published six months ahead of the regular schedule in paperback version. The book is now available in three formats: Paperback, hardback, and ebook. It can be ordered through the publisher's website (Routledge).

Michel's research on the temporalities and the rhythms of education is at the core of his contribution to the TRC Lab and it frames some of his coaching work at the Institute. If you are interested to learn more about this publication and Michel's research, feel free to contact us.
