Meanwhile … Meanwhile: Lapses in Time and Narrative
How does a writer or a filmmaker skip forward or flash back? And how do they account for history's gaps, elisions, and returns? What exactly happens in the meanwhile, in the two months earlier, in the ever after? What is a narrative time lapse? Let's dwell on the meanwhile - on the ghosts of time - on what embodies and disembodies it. Let's dwell in the meanwhile.
