Despite overwhelming rhetorical attention to the topic of globalization, our understanding of the phenomenon remains limited. To appreciate the particular qualities of globalization, the metaphor of a network may be appropriate. A focus on networks allows us to examine the integration of economic, social, political, and cultural regimes as a process in and of itself. Viewing globalization as a network allows us to combine different forms of interaction (e.g., trade, migration, conflict) into a cohesive portrait of international integration. The Mapping Globalization Project (http://qed.princeton.edu/index.php/MG) seeks to create a data archive with which to better understand historical and contemporary globalization. This presentation provides an introduction to the Project and discusses some basic findings.
