Additional Information

This chapter examines how the framework of actor network theory is both productively and destructively complicated through the highly themed environment, using the Kidzania chain of entertainment destinations as a case study. It challenges the depiction of the themed environment as "fake," seeking to leverage critical agency for both the occupants of these environments and theorists writing about them via the concept of complicatedness.
