Solid lines are “constitutive ties,” dotted lines “relational social exchanges,” and oblongs formal organizations. Dots are individuals. We will repeatedly make use of studies of multiple networks in Renaissance Florence conducted by John Padgett and coauthors. 1—of theirs that you can interpret in terms of netdom switches. The constructs I am introducing are not meant just for small-scale, casual, and current processes. Networks are overview reports from the dynamics of overlapping of, and transitivity in and across, netdoms.

How Ties and Stories Mesh in Networks Meanings that come from switchings fold into stories, which thus come from, and also become a medium for, control efforts in ties. 8 Particular ties and stories get spun off as by-products of some particular history, but I can offer some general guidance for specification and analysis. I associate a single overall story, such as acquaintance, with a general network in multiplex tie, whereas stories specialized to types of tie may call up multiple networks. For participants, stories are the key, and they may suffice to discriminate among types of tie, resulting in multiple networks, as for kinship relations.

This is why “power” is not the right term for these processes. 4. Netdoms, Networks, and Disciplines Control efforts take place in demarcated social spaces. Netdom is a suitable descriptor: “dom” from domain of topics and “net” from network relations. Identities switch from netdom to netdom, finding footings in different networks in differing domain contexts. The dualism of network and domain is essential, and make no mistake, it is a radical departure from common sense. We won’t reach the singular “person” until chapter 4.
