This dissertation challenges conventional interpretations of new communications and information technology and their implications for global economies and politics. It develops an understanding of these new technologies and their impacts through a cultural approach based on a sensitivity to symbolic and textual practices. In particular, it organizes its analysis around the notion of general equivalence as a way of interpreting the institution of semiotic or symbolic hierarchies in a number of seemingly diverse areas related to information practices and organizational sovereignties
