Post-global Network and Everyday Life
Marina Levina, Grant Kien
Peter Lang, 2010 - Social Science - 200 pages
Post-Global Network and Everyday Life explores everyday life in the new world order of global network. It argues that network has come into its own as a state of mind and a way of life - in sum, a cultural norm. As a result, it is no longer fitting to examine the network as an external force, but as a somewhat banal aspect of our everyday environment. The essays in this volume provide analyses of case studies that illustrate new - and old - ways in which everyday life is lived within network. Each chapter examines network as an always-already condition - we are the network, and as such are living in a state of post-global network.
