Sarah Sharma

Sarah Sharma is an associate professor and Director of the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto. Her monograph In the Meantime: Temporality and Cultural Politics was named the 2014 National Communication Critical Cultural Division Book of the Year. In the Meantime intervenes in the popular sentiment that the world is speeding and argues the explanatory power of speed up is less an accurate depiction of the contemporary moment than it is an ideological discourse itself. Sharma is currently working on a new project that explores the gendered politics of exit and refusal, or what she terms “the (s)Exit,” within contemporary technoculture.
