The Nick of Time: Politics, Evolution, and the Untimely

By Elizabeth Grosz | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book would not have been possible without the help, support, and input of many institutions and individuals. I owe a debt of gratitude to three universities in particular. The earliest researches for this book were undertaken at the Centre for Cultural Studies and Critical Theory at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Without the support and encouragement of faculty and students there, on whom I rehearsed the earliest and most incoherent ideas developed here, I would have had no idea where to go next, what to concentrate on, what to eliminate, what I knew enough about already and what I knew I didn’t yet know, what was then beyond me, what I had to acquire in order to make sense of what, for me, was a new and unfamiliar topic.

The first two sections of the book were written while I worked in the Departments of Comparative Literature and English at the State University of New York at Buffalo. I am particularly grateful to the graduate students in those departments, who suffered through a number of courses in which I developed and refined much of the material that would find itself, I hope in improved form, here. These improvements and refinements were the results of the feedback and queries of these smart and critical students. My stay at UB was particularly facilitated by the kind and generous support of Ms Theresa Monacelli and through the intellectual stimulus provided by my colleagues there, Professors Mimi Long, Jill Robbins, Isabel Marcus, Carol Zemel, and Joan Copjec. My thanks to them for their generosity, kindness, and support during the period of my tenure at UB.

The book’s final sections were completed while I worked in the Women’s
