Eviatar Zeruvabel would be where I would start (Hidden Rhythms). There's a classic piece by Roy (1959-ish?) on 'banana time', but this is about combating monotony & job satisfaction.

Thanks very much, Peter! Ill have a look at these. Ive also been reading / pillaging the journal Time and Society, which has had some useful stuff, and have Zimbardos new book on time cued up. That might have something useful as well.

Ah yes, the DF Roy piece on banana time. I had a colleague who wanted to write about jokes in the workplace that get out of hand, and call it A Banana Too Far. I hope the piece comes out....
