Globalising knowledge

The current issue of Theory, Culture & Society problematises global knowledge and rounds up a stellar collection of short and sweet encyclopedia articles covering everything from media, religion, gender, copyright, race, discipline, technology, aesthetics and markets, to bodies and even life itself.

Rob writes about virtualities and knowledge spaces, while Joost covers the network--and I also recommend Yeoh on mobility and the city, Maciel on the unclassifiable, Galloway on protocol, Roberts and Mackenzie on science, Fischer on science, technology and society, Knorr Cetina on the market, Bell on performative knowledge, Wong and Bishop on junk space, Venn on collections and rubbish, and Michael Gardiner on everyday knowledge.
