Volume 4, Issue 1 of *spacesofidentity* is now online at
http://www.spacesofidentity.net.

In addition to articles by Srdjan Vucetic, reporting on his fieldwork on
humor in Bosnia and why Bosnians are so often the butts of their own jokes,
and Tomasz Kamusella, who proves Shakespeare right in his historical
examination of Silesian place-names, the issue contains the first of a
series of special sections on networks that are the result of a larger
collaborative endeavor *spacesofidentity* is very pleased to be part of.
Initiated by "Kakanien revisited," a web-based networking project for
interdisciplinary research in the field of Central and Eastern European
studies, this project aims to theoretically reflect on the networking that
makes up its practice.

In this section, Cornelia Szabˇ-Knotik's comparison of Brahms, Bruckner and
Johann Strau▀ reveals how socially determined and gendered strategies of
networking in Ringstrassenzeit Vienna's music life were, Vesna Mikic zooms
in on the technocultural subject in the net of Jasna Veli_kovi_'s
Vris.Krik.exe (2000), the first Concerto for live electronic orchestra in
the history of Serbian music, and Angeles Espinaco-Virseda delves into the
networks responsible for the formation of gendered and sexual identities in
her analysis of the lesbian subculture in Weimar Germany as represented in
the magazine *Die Freundin*.

Enjoy reading, the editors
