Everyday HybridityDr Paul O'Connor
From “Romance of the Three Kingdoms”.
Earlier this year a student used this phrase in a paper to distinguish a point I had made in class regarding Lefebvre’s Rhythmanalysis. The discussion was on the issue of globalisation and how different eras of globalisation can be understood in a rhythmanalysis of international engagement and disengagement.
The text is translated roughly as follows…
Kingdoms long divided must come together, Kingdoms long together must divide.
It is a poetic way to consider rhytmanalysis, which itself recognises the patterns, disruptions, continuities and discontinuities that affect both our physical and social lives.
