Historical Network Research conference 2020
The 6th Historical Network Research conference will be hosted by the C²DH on 17-19 June in Belval.

Social network analysis theories and methods have emerged as a persuasive extension of purely metaphorical uses of network concepts in historical research. The HNR conference series explores the challenges and possibilities of network research in historical scholarship and serves as a platform for researchers from various disciplines to meet, present and discuss their latest research findings and to demonstrate tools and projects. The 2020 conference will run over three days opening with a workshop day and two conference days.

Participants are invited to take part in one or two of three half-day-workshops:

  • Introduction to Social Network Analysis (Matthias Bixler, Independent Researcher)
  • Exponential Random Graph Models for Historical Networks (Antonio Fiscarelli, University of Luxemburg)
  • Analysis of Two-Mode Networks with Python (Demival Vasques Filho, Leibniz Institute of European History Mainz)

The closing keynote will be delivered by Petter Holme, Specially Appointed Professor at the Institute of Innovative Research at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, the speaker for the opening keynote will be announced in the near future.
