DEFINING A GLOBAL GEOGRAPHY
by Eszter Hargittai
2001. American Behavioral Scientist 44(10)
Globalization involves a variety of links
expanding and tightening a web of political, economic and
cultural inter-connections. Individual data indicate that
we are undergoing a process of compression of international
time and space and an intensification of international relations.
Yet, individual data sources tell us little more than that.
This article offers an alternative approach to studying globalization
by highlighting the possible contributions of network methods
to the field. We argue that using relational data helps in
uncovering the intertwined nature of the emerging global order.

Australian Online Opinion
CALLS AND FAX MACHINES: The Limits to Globalization
Louch, Eszter Hargittai,
1999. The Washington Quarterly. 22:2 83-100
This paper uses network analysis
to explore what changes in international telecommunications
reveal about the process of globalization.
