“Technology and Difference: Editorial.” Leonardo Electronic Almanac 11-11 (Fall 2003) Edited Special Issue.

This issue is the second of two parts on the theme of "Technology and Difference." This part has two essays and two project reports. In the first of the two essays, Eugene Thacker writes on "genetic difference" and globalization. Second, Raqs Media Collective explores the specific history of biometric procedures, their implications in relation to the notions of difference and identity and their connection to modern biometric applications. After this, the reader will find the two project reports: first, Radhika Gajjala critically addresses "mappings of globalization" and their figurations in India, followed by Seda Gyrses's report from Germany on the attempt to engage "computing and race" within a feminist framework.
