Abstract
This thesis concerns itself with the changes wrought by the movement from analog to

digital spaces. These changes are mirrored by changes in the way states practice

sovereignty. Examples of new practices of sovereignty are found in the documents of the

National Information Infrastrucure Advisory Council. Close analysis of these examples

reveals the disciplinary projects of spatial (re)construction implied by these new

practices. The effects of these types of spatial disciplinarity on individual subjectivities

are also discussed.
