Ralph Ellison, Temporal Technologist elucidates the theory of temporality that binds Ellison's oeuvre together, and explains why race is a matter of time. Germana offers a wholesale reinterpretation of Ellison's corpus as well as an extension of Ellison's ideas about the dynamism of becoming and the open-endedness of the future.
