A substantial number of studies on different topics and periods have shown that network theories and methods can be fruitfully applied to selected bodies of historical and archaeological sources. Yet in many of these initial studies\, important methodological concerns regarding the underlying sources\, missing data\, data standardization and representation of networks in space and time have not been adequately acknowledged and sometimes even completely neglected. \nThe session invites contributions from researchers applying methods of formal network analysis in archaeological or historical research. A special emphasis of the session will be on the unique challenges that arise in the domain-specific application of these research methods. We welcome submissions on any period\, geographical area or topic. \nOne or more sessions at the 2018 International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA) Sunbelt Conference will focus on archaeological and historical network analysis. The conference will take place June 26 – July 1 in Utrecht\, Netherlands. Abstracts for 20-minute paper presentations can be submitted at \nSubmissions are due 1 February 2018\, and authors of accepted papers will be notified by March 2018. \nSession organizers: \nAline Deicke (Academy of Sciences and Literature | Mainz) \nMartin Stark (ILS Research Institute\, Aachen) \nLieve Donnellan (VU University Amsterdam) \nMatthias Bixler (University of Zurich) \n URL: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20180702 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20180714 DTSTAMP:20180620T111006 CREATED:20180316T161932Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180317T120331Z SUMMARY:Summer School in Social Network Analysis\, Manchester DESCRIPTION:***** To join INSNA\, visit ***** \nDear colleagues \nThe Mitchell Centre for Social Network Analysis at the University of Manchester is organising two modules on SNA for the annual summer school of Methods@Manchester. \nInfo and registrations are available at \n \nThis year we offer: \n\nIntroduction to SNA using Ucinet and Netdraw\n\n2-6 July \nThis is an introductory course\, covering the concepts\, methods and data analysis techniques of social network analysis. The course is based on the book “Analyzing Social Networks” by Borgatti et al. (Sage) and all participants will be issued with a copy of the book. The course begins with a general introduction to the distinct goals and perspectives of social network analysis\, followed by a practical discussion of network data\, covering issues of collection\, validity\, visualization\, and mathematical/computer representation. We then take up the methods of detection and description of structural properties\, such as centrality\, cohesion\, subgroups and positional analysis techniques. This is a hands on course largely based around the use of UCINET software\, and will give participants experience of analyzing real social network data using the techniques covered in the workshop. No prior knowledge of social network analysis is assumed for this course. \n\nStatistical analysis of social networks\n\n9-13 July \nThis is an introduction to statistical analysis of networks. While no strict prerequisites are assumed\, you might find it helpful to have some basic knowledge of social network analysis beforehand. To benefit fully from the course requires a basic knowledge of standard statistical methods\, such regression analysis. The course aims to give a basic understanding of and working handle on drawing inference for structure and attributes\, both cross-sectionally as well as longitudinally. A fundamental notion of the course will be how the structure of observed graphs relate to various forms of random graphs. This will be developed in the context of non-parametric approaches and elaborated to analysis of networks using exponential random graph models (ERGM) and stochastic actor-oriented models. The main focus will be on explaining structure but an outlook to explaining individual-level outcomes will be provided. The participant will be provided with several hands-on exercises\, applying the approaches to a suite of real world data sets. We will use the stand-alone graphical user interface package MPNet and R. In R we will learn how to use the packages ‘sna’\, ‘statnet’\, and ‘RSiena’. No familiarity with R is assumed but preparatory exercises will be provided ahead of the course. best \nElisa Bellotti \nDepartment of Sociology \nand \nMitchell Centre for Social Network Analysis \n \n \nUniversity of Manchester \nArthur Lewis Building \nRoom 3.029 \nBridgeford Street \nManchester M13 9PL \n+44(0)1612752512 \n_____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA\, the professional association for social network researchers ( To unsubscribe\, send an email message to containing the line UNSUBSCRIBE SOCNET in the body of the message. \n URL: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20180706 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20180708 DTSTAMP:20180620T111006 CREATED:20180331T210812Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180331T210812Z SUMMARY:POLNET + Ego-Network Analysis: Data and Methods\, July 6-7\, 2018\, University of Konstanz DESCRIPTION:via Martin Stark: \nDear Colleagues and Students\, \nThe quintessence of networking has always been that individuals or organizations have used their direct and indirect contacts to mobilize support\, to share ideas\, or to sell products and services. In the meantime\, a series of specialized methods have been developed to collect and analyze such egocentric network data. \nThese methods will be the focus of the upcoming summer school Polnet Plus\, which this year will be jointly organized by Ulrik Brandes (ETH Zurich) and Volker Schneider (University of Konstanz) at the University of Konstanz at July 6 and 7\, 2018. \nThe summer school includes a keynote speech by José Luis Molina (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)\, various sessions that introduce the participants into the topic\, the collection of egocentric network data with VennMaker\, the visualization of such data in visone\, and the basics of ego-network data analysis in R. \nIn addition\, we offer a pre-summer school refresher Network Analysis with R\, starting from Wednesday (July 4) until Friday (July 6) morning (see timetable) for newcomers and participants without basic knowledge in R and Social Network Analysis. \nThe members of this year’s POLNET + faculty team are Ulrik Brandes1\, Heike Brugger2\, Boris Holzer3\, Lukáš Lehotský4\, Jürgen Lerner3\, Melanie Nagel3\, Petr Ocelík4\, Keiichi Satoh3\, Volker Schneider3\, Martin Stark5\, and Antje Witting3. \n[1 ETH Zurich | 2 Fraunhofer ISI | 3 University of Konstanz; 4 Masaryk University; 5 ILS Aachen] \nPlease do not hesitate to contact Christiane Richter ( with any further questions or to register your interest in attending the summer school until May 30.

The course focuses on the description and visualization of social network data using UCINET. We will concentrate on uncovering structural properties of the network (e.g. density\, homophily\, and clustering)\, as well as on how to identify important persons in a network (e.g. degree centrality\, structural holes\, …). We will also pay attention to the detection of subgroups and deal with basic hypothesis testing for social network analysis. Throughout the course some classic theories that focus on network processes (e.g. related to homophily\, centrality measures\, structural holes\, Granovetter’s strength of weak ties and small worlds) will be discussed. \nMore information at: \n2) Advanced Social Network Analysis: Cross-sectional and longitudinal SNA (1 week\, 23-27 July 2018) \nContent. This module covers advanced statistical methods for analyzing social network data\, focusing on testing hypotheses about network structure (e.g. reciprocity\, transitivity\, and closure)\, and the formation of ties based on attributes (e.g. homophily). The first three days provide an in depth discussion of exponential random graph models (also known as ERGM or p* models). We then introduce longitudinal models such as RSiena models (SAOMs) and relational event models. \nMore information at: \nPlease feel free to forward to anyone that you think might be interested. \nBest wishes\, \nFilip \n_________ \n URL: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20180730 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20180805 DTSTAMP:20180620T111006 CREATED:20180316T162338Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180316T162338Z SUMMARY:2nd Summer School on Methods for Computational Social Science DESCRIPTION:***Apologies for any cross-posting*** \nDear all\, \nWe would like to announce the second Summer School on Methods for Computational Social Science.

September 2018\n– Call for papers – \nUniversitätssammlungen bildeten sich im 18. Jahrhundert als “zentrale\nBegegnungsorte” (Dominik Collet) heraus\, an denen Akademiker und\nAmateure\, Text- und Dingwissen\, alte und neue Welt miteinander in\nBeziehung traten. Die Sammlungen öffneten die Universitäten für neue\nAkteursgruppen sowie für neue Formen und Praktiken des Wissens. \nBis heute bilden universitäre Sammlungen keine abgeschlossenen Räume\,\nsondern versammeln Menschen genauso wie Objekte und fungieren weiterhin\nals “contact zone” (James Clifford). Sie sind vielfach quer zu\nDisziplinen und Institutionen miteinander sowie mit außeruniversitären\nFeldern verflochten – schon allein durch die Biographien ihrer Objekte.\nÜber die verschlungenen Wege\, auf denen die Sammlungsbestände häufig an\ndie Universitäten gelangten\, ihre wechselnden Nutzungen und ihre\nVerbindungen zu verschiedenen Akteuren wie Urheberinnen\, Sammlerinnen\,\nfrüheren Besitzer*innen\, Forschenden und Studierenden bilden sie\nKnotenpunkte ausgedehnter Netzwerke. Die Perspektiven auf ihre Objekte\nsind dabei immer wieder unterschiedlich\, je nach Blickwinkel erhalten\ndiese andere Bedeutungszuschreibungen und Verwendungszusammenhänge. \nDie diesjährige Sammlungstagung\, die die Johannes Gutenberg-Universität\nMainz (JGU) gemeinsam mit der Gesellschaft für Universitätssammlungen\n(GfU) vom 13. bis 15. September 2018 ausrichtet\, will die\nBeziehungsnetze der Sammlungen und die unterschiedlichen Perspektiven\nauf ihre Objekte in den Blick nehmen. Es soll ausgelotet werden\, welches\nPotential sich daraus für Kooperationen mit anderen Fächern\, mit inner-\nund außeruniversitären Partnern\, auf regionaler\, nationaler und\ninternationaler Ebene ergibt. \nAnhand von theoretisch-reflektierenden Beiträgen\, die mit\nPraxisbeispielen verbunden sein können\, werden die Chancen und der\nErtrag sammlungsbezogener Kooperationen in den Blick genommen. Wie\nwerden Sammlungen zu aktiven “Begegnungsorten”\, wie finden sich Partner?\nWelche Motivation\, Zielsetzung und Bedeutung hat die Aktivierung der\nNetzwerke rund um die Objekte? Welche Irritationen verursachen die\nBegegnungen? Welche neuen Perspektiven auf die Objekte ergeben sich? Wie\nwirkt sich die konkrete Zusammenarbeit mit unterschiedlichen Partnern\nauf objektbezogene Erkenntnisprozesse aus\, wie auf die Weiterentwicklung\nvon Sammlungen und das Selbstverständnis des eigenen Arbeitsfeldes? Es\nsoll aber auch kritisch nach den Grenzen und Problemen in Kooperationen\ngefragt werden. Welche Kommunikationshürden bestehen\, woran scheitern\nProjekte? Was kann zu ihrem Gelingen beitragen? \nFolgende Themenfelder und Fragestellungen sollen einbezogen werden: \n– Interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit (Lehr- und Forschungsprojekte\,\ninsbes. Verbindung von Geistes- und Naturwissenschaften)\n– Inneruniversitäre Kooperationen (Einbettung in inneruniversitäre\nProjekte und Organisati-onsstrukturen)\n– Zusammenarbeit mit Expert*innen aus der Praxis (z.B. mit\nRestauratoren\, Handwerkern…)\n– Internationale Zusammenarbeit (insbes. in Lehre und Forschung\, bei\nAusstellungen)\n– Objektzirkulation (Leihgabe\, Tausch und Abgabe von Objekten\,\nZusammenführung/Trennung von Beständen\, sammlungsübergreifende\nZusammenarbeit)\n– Digitale Netzwerke (sammlungsübergreifende Objektdatenbanken\,\nvirtuelle Ausstellungen…)\n– Provenienzforschungsnetzwerke (Formen der Zusammenarbeit bei Sensiblen\nObjekten)\n– Kooperation mit außeruniversitären Partnern (Museen\, Schulen\, Vereine\,\nBürger*innen…\, integrative und partizipative Projekte)\n– Kooperation “quergedacht” (ungewöhnliche Netzwerke und Kooperationen) \nDiese Themenfelder sollen in Einzelvorträgen (ca.30 Minuten zzgl. 15\nMinuten Diskussion) im Plenum behandelt werden und Gegenstand von\nzeitgleich zueinander angebotenen\, vertiefenden Workshops sein. Die\nWorkshops\, die einen zentralen Programmpunkt der Tagung darstellen\,\nwerden jeweils durch kleinere Impuls-Referate (max. 10 Minuten)\neingeleitet\, denen eine gemeinsame Diskussion\, eine praktische Erprobung\nvon Methoden\, die Erarbeitung von Leitlinien für die Praxis\nunterschiedlicher Formen der Kooperation o.Ä. folgt. Geplant ist zudem\nein Poster-Slam\, bei dem in sehr knapper Form\, ausgehend von einem\nzusammenfassenden Poster\, aktuelle Projekte mit Bezug zum Tagungsthema\npräsentiert werden; ergänzend werden die Poster in einer Ausstellung\ngezeigt. \nWir freuen uns über Vorschläge für alle drei Formate – d.h. für längere\nEinzelvorträge\, Impuls-Referate im Rahmen der Workshops oder Beiträge\nzum Poster-Slam.

New Approaches\, Opportunities and Epistemological Implications of Social Network Analysis - Washington DESCRIPTION:via Martin Stark: \nGerman Historical Institute 25.10.2018-27.10.2018\, \nWashington DC\, Washington DC \nDeadline: 12.04.2018 \n \nThird Annual GHI Conference on Digital Humanities and Digital History International Conference and Workshop at the German Historical Institute Washington \nIn collaboration with Stanford University \nConveners: Matthew Hiebert (GHI)\, Simone Lässig (GHI)\, Katherine McDonough (Stanford) \nKeywords: historical and social network analysis; digital history; digital humanities; historical networks; modelling; social structures; historical methods; semantic web; Quellenkritik; digital tools; graph visualization; knowledge creation \nThis event seeks to assess through international dialogue the state-of-the-art in social network analysis (SNA) for creating genuinely historical knowledge\, both in respect to tools and their applications\, but also with regard to methodological and epistemological implications. Established since the 1970s in the social sciences\, network analysis conceptualizes individuals as embedded within webs of social structures through which influence and other resources are transferred disparately. The method is increasingly being adopted and transformed by scholars studying global and transregional history to reveal illuminating patterns and to make new arguments. This event is intended as an opportunity to discuss advantages\, challenges and limits of adapting and applying SNA tools to historical research. The conference aims at reflecting upon the impact of the method on conceptions of history\, historical methodology\, and Quellenkritik and vice versa-to think through\, first\, how approaches to social network analysis might change the discipline of history and the knowledge it produces. Second\, the conference will discuss pitfalls\, methodological challenges\, and limits than can be identified when applying principles of social network analysis and existing software programs to historical research\, which has to take into account not only space and place\, but also time. The development of web-based environments for social network analysis-facilitating collaborative research\, enhancing data integration\, and combining other digital methods-is transforming ways in which social network analysis is being undertaken. These and more traditional SNA tools are allowing historians to clarify social factors affecting historical agents and to develop arguments in new ways. Notably\, historians are increasingly turning to SNA for analytically contending with the entanglements\, human ties\, and geographical distances of transnational communities and actors. The integration of SNA with advanced data visualization\, semantic web and Resource Description Framework (RDF)\, mapping\, and collaborative techniques promises further research advances within history. This event focuses on processes and implications of historical social network analyses towards exploring how approaches\, platforms\, and standards can be used to model networks reflecting quality data\, accurate results\, and new insights. To open up opportunities for critical inner- but also inter-disciplinary theoretical-methodological reflection and comparison\, the event seeks to present and discuss a large range of approaches and historical topics. We especially welcome\, therefore\, proposals that are comparative in scope\, projects integrating several digital techniques\, and approaches contending with multiple geographical regions. While the overriding concern of the event is the use of social network analysis in historiography\, from the Early Modern period to the present\, the range of approaches is open and may involve digital humanities\, cultural history\, political history\, history of knowledge\, (post)colonial history\, urban history\, the methodological history or other critical frameworks. Although research centered on nation-states is relevant\, we are particularly interested in the question of how to use historical SNA for transnational\, transregional and global history sufficiently. \nPlease submit proposals by April 12\, 2018 for either (or both): a. 20-minutes presentations at the conference or / and b. Workshops of one to two hours. Please include a suggested schedule and intended participant learning outcomes. Questions and topics that might be addressed (but are by no means limited to) are: 1. Historical perspectives on social network analysis as a scientific method 2. Reflecting on the transformation of historical inquiry through the adoption of social network analysis and associated approaches 3. Tracing the dynamics of class\, race\, ethnicity\, gender or other factors within communities or societies 4. New opportunities for migration and mobility studies 5. Network-Analysis for the history of knowledge circulation and its agents 6. Opportunities and challenges of existing and experimental digital methods in historical network analysis that address temporal\, spatial\, and other issues 7. Managing\, transforming\, and sharing historical evidence for SNA 8. Resources needed for using or adapting SNA in historical research Funding is available to support travel expenses. Please submit proposals of no more than 500 words\, with a short (1-2 page) CV\, by April 12 2018 to Susanne Fabricius ( For further information regarding format and concept of the event please contact Dr. Matthew Hiebert ( \n URL: LOCATION:Washington\, United States END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20181206 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20181208 DTSTAMP:20180620T111006 CREATED:20180410T102603Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180410T102603Z SUMMARY:The Connected Past Oxford 2018 DESCRIPTION:The Connected Past Oxford 2018 \nWhat? An international conference on spatiotemporal archaeological and historical network research \nWhen? 6-7 December 2018 \nWhere? University of Oxford\, United Kingdom \nKeynotes? Dr. Nathalie Riche (Microsoft Research) and Dr. Matthew Peeples (Arizona State University) \nDeadline call for papers? 14 May 2018 \nMore information? \nOrganisers? PastNet \nHow do social networks evolve over very long time-scales? How did geography constrain or enhance the development of past social networks? These are fundamental questions in both the study of the human past and network research\, yet our ability to answer them is severely hampered by the limited development of spatiotemporal network methods. PastNet is an inter-disciplinary network that aims to stimulate the development and application of such methods through networking meetings\, a conference and a workshop. \nFormal network methods are increasingly commonly applied in a wide range of disciplines to study phenomena as diverse as the connectivity of neurons in the human brain\, terrorist networks\, a billion interlinked Facebook profiles\, and power grids. Despite this diversity and the decades-long tradition of using network methods in the social sciences\, physics and computer science\, the development of techniques for the study of spatial networks and long-term network change has so far been largely neglected. Network research is also becoming more common in disciplines concerned with the study of past human behaviour: archaeology\, classics and history. These disciplines have a strong tradition in exploring long-term human behavioural change and spatial phenomena\, despite being forced to use fragmentary textual and material sources as indirect evidence of such phenomena. \nBy bringing together network researchers from a diverse range of fields such as archaeology\, computer science\, history and physics\, The Connected Past 2018 conference in Oxford aims to foster cross-disciplinary exchange to push network research further. The historical disciplines will contribute new spatiotemporal approaches and datasets to network research\, whereas the traditional network research disciplines will further stimulate the critical application of network approaches to the study of the human past. \nThis event is part of The Connected Past series of conferences ( It is made possible thanks to the generous support of The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH and is organised by the TORCH research network PastNet ( \nWe welcome submissions of abstracts on the topic of spatial and temporal network approaches. We particularly welcome abstracts that address the challenges posed by the use of or apply network approaches in historical/archaeological research contexts\, welcoming case studies drawn from all periods and places. Topics might include\, but are not limited to:\n\n– Spatial networks\n– Temporal networks\n– Archaeological network research\n– Historical network research\n– Missing and incomplete data in archaeological and historical networks\n– What kinds of data can archaeologists and historians use to reconstruct past networks and what kinds of issues ensue?\n– Formal network analysis vs qualitative network approaches: pros\, cons\, potential\, limitations\nPlease submit your abstract limited to 250 words before midnight (GMT) of May 14th 2018 to \n URL: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20181211 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20181214 DTSTAMP:20180620T111006 CREATED:20180316T162037Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180317T120243Z SUMMARY:Seventh Int.
