The portmanteau terms networks, and more specifically, global networks, seem to have become the mots du jour in contemporary cultural and social studies. But what cultural, social and political work do global networks accomplish: what is the work of these networks? This path-breaking collection follows Graeme Thompsons rallying cry for a clearer analytical approach to the ways in which networks are enacted, assembled, conducted, and performed. In its thirteen chapters, scholars from a variety of fields sociology, theatre and performance studies, peace studies, history, and musicology as well as social and cultural activists, explore the multiple meanings of global networks and performance.
