Navigating the Transnational in Modern American Literature and Culture: Axes of Influence

Tara Stubbs

Navigating the Transnational in Modern American Literature and Culture: Axes of Influence by Tara StubbsThis study develops the important work carried out on American literature through the frameworks of transnational, transatlantic, and trans-local studies to ask what happens when these same aspects become intrinsic to the critical narrative. Much cultural criticism since the 1990s has sought to displace perceptions of American exceptionalism with broader notions of Atlanticism, transnationalism, world-system, and trans-localism as each has redefined the US and the world more generally. This collection shows how the remapping of America in terms of global networks, and as a set of particular...

Planet Utopia: Utopia, Dystopia, and Globalisation

Mark Featherstone

Planet Utopia: Utopia, Dystopia, and Globalisation by Mark Featherstone

The key figure of the capitalist utopia is the individual who is ultimately free. The capitalist's ideal society is designed to protect this freedom. However, within Planet Utopia: Utopia, Dystopia, Globalisation, Featherstone argues that capitalist utopian vision, which is most clearly expressed in theories of global finance, is no longer sustainable today.

This book concerns the status of utopian thinking in contemporary global society and the possibility of imagining alternative ways of living outside of capitalism. Using a range of sociological and philosophical theories to write the first...

Public Disorder and Globalization

Sophie Body-Gendrot

Public Disorder and Globalization by Sophie Body-Gendrot

The current growth of incidents of public disorder around the world can be seen as symptomatic of major transformations in globalized society, government, and technology. But while disorder is routinely perceived as a disturbing phenomenon, it can also be a catalyst for positive transformation and regeneration. As social media is increasingly used as a platform for mobilization and organization, local disorder may spread outward through national borders, receiving international coverage and visibility as well as triggering a domino effect of global unrest.

Combining qualitative and quantitative...

Community, Competition and Citizen Science: Voluntary Distributed Computing in a Globalized World

Anne Holohan

Community, Competition and Citizen Science: Voluntary Distributed Computing in a Globalized World by Anne HolohanVoluntary distributed computing projects divide large computational tasks into small pieces of data or work that are sent out over the Internet to be processed by individual users, who participate voluntarily in order to provide solutions that would ordinarily require investments of millions of dollars. This approach is contributing to the transformation of computationally heavy scientific research, opening up participation in science to interested lay people and greatly reducing the cost-barriers to computation for financially challenged researchers. Drawing on face-to-face and online ethnographic,...
