In this issue of ephemera we publish a range of papers that engage with theory and politics in the organisation of global conflicts. Across these works, time - the time of their objects, and the time of their objects’ having been thought as such - are rendered salient. Here, conflict - as itself a site of object and of subject - theory, episteme, practical life - is revealed, intimately, emergent as the organisation of these. To point to the global of conflict, then, harks as much to the schizoid and conflictual singularities of the present of historical thought thinking its own objects - its possibilities and its pasts - as it harks to singularities in the geographies and scalings of its present.
