Processes of globalization and the advancement of new technologies have been impacting on local social networks significantly. This paper moves away from an analysis of networks as defining social space, towards an ethnography of linking and connections. What does the linking entail and how does this encompass moments of change? We consider two linking technologies of different natures - the mobile phone and the passport-to-life - and assess what these technologies link. Central in this analysis is how linking connections possess agency in producing social change.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>van Dijk, Rijk</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
