About this book


Reading a range of work from the US and UK over the last two decades, this is an innovative study of theatre's growing obsession with technologies and effects of naming. How does theatre reflect, and intervene in, naming practices across domains such as philosophy, computing, journalism, anthropology, advertising, military training, and genetics?
