This paper explores the way in which contemporary physics offers different categories of time, or temporal coordinates, that can help shed life on the “closed” epistemologies in African Diaspora Studies. Using the example of Kamari Clarke's “New Spheres of Transnational Formations: Mobilizations of Humanitarian Diasporas,” this article argues that Clarke's use of what physicists refer to as “B series time” provides a broader, more inclusive epistemology for the study of the African diaspora in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
