 About time


This comment on Gascón & Nicolás (2017) explores relationships between mathematics education research and conceptualizations of time. Using Fabian’s critique of temporal perspectives in anthropological research (1983) and Lemke’s framework of timescales (2000), we consider ways in which implicit attitudes towards time in research can position teachers as “Other,” and we consider alternative perspectives on time and research that may reduce this ideological separation.
