Résumé

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.
