Typically\, this data has a relational dimension. As a consequence\, network analysis is becoming increasingly important as a social science method. The social networks constructed from DBD\, however\, are much larger than the small-scale structures classically studied in the past. They give rise to higher-order structures and functionalities (complexity) that spring from lower-order processes. Plus\, DBD typically allows for the analysis of the dynamics of these so-called complex networks. In this course\, we present a basic understanding of social relations\, the structures and dynamics which they collectively self-organize into\, and how network methods and programming in Python can be deployed in practical application scenarios. Following an introduction to data formats\, network construction\, and plotting\, the first day covers node-level measures such as centrality. The second day deals with community detection and stochastic blockmodeling\, the main classes of methods at the meso-scale of analysis. The third day focuses on macro-scale structures and dynamics. It covers the small-world and scale-free properties that make networks complex and why these are relevant for the social sciences. The fourth day is dedicated to simulations of social mechanisms (network generation) and dynamics on networks. The last day is reserved for group projects. The program plan alternates between demonstrations and exercises. The former presents the theoretical and technical background of network analysis\, while the latter allows participants to apply acquired knowledge with code directly.\n\n\n\n\nParticipants will obtain profound knowledge of relational methods integrated with social theory. The course includes material typically taught in Social Network Analysis classes but goes beyond it regarding the topic of complexity. Hence\, it is aimed at scholars who are interested in the potential of BDB and how networks can be analyzed in an interdisciplinary way. Throughout the course\, the Python libraries are used that are most suited for the respective analysis task. For example\, community detection will be done with networkx while graph-tool is the library of choice for stochastic blockmodeling. To ease access to network analysis\, well-known\, also small\, datasets are used. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own datasets to be analyzed in group projects or during the course.\n\n\n\n\nParticipants should be willing to study algorithmic approaches on abstract and applied levels. An affinity to computational approaches to research as well as a basic understanding of statistics are highly recommended. Previous knowledge on network analysis is helpful but not necessary. Previous knowledge on programming in Python or another programming language (like R\, Java) is advantageous but not necessary to follow the coursework. Big Data Module I offers – besides an introduction to data science – a general introduction to data handling that is also beneficial for network analysis\, but taking that course is not necessary for this one. To ensure a common starting level between participants\, we expect attendants to familiarize themselves with the most basic concepts of Python such as variables and tables via provided learning materials beforehand. A mini refreshment of basic Python commands will be offered at the beginning of the course. Please note that participants have to bring their own laptop for this course. All utilized software is available without cost as open source under Windows\, MacOS\, and Linux systems. Detailed installation instructions for the suggested development environments will be provided before the start of the course.\n\n\n\n URL:http://historicalnetworkresearch.org/event/cfp-big-data-module-ii-introduction-to-social-network-science-with-python/ LOCATION:Cologne END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20190729 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20190803 DTSTAMP:20190626T161059 CREATED:20181002T145538Z LAST-MODIFIED:20181002T145538Z UID:69675-1564358400-1564790399@historicalnetworkresearch.org SUMMARY:Network Analysis + Digital Art History A Getty Advanced Workshop DESCRIPTION:\n\n\n\n\nNetwork Analysis + Digital Art History\nA Getty Advanced Workshop\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCall for Participation\n\n\nWorkshop Schedule\nOne-week convening\, July 29–August 2\, 2019\nMonthly virtual convenings\, Fall–Spring 2019–2020\nTwo-week convening\, June 22–July 3\, 2020 \n\nThe NA+DAH Workshop is a Getty Foundation-supported event that will bring together art historians\, network scientists\, and digital humanists to advance research at the intersection of these fields. \nDirected by Alison Langmead (University of Pittsburgh)\, Anne Helmreich (Texas Christian University)\, and Scott B. Weingart (Carnegie Mellon University)—all scholars engaged with digital art history and network analysis—the Network Analysis + Digital Art History Workshop will unfold over a full year and will be framed by two face-to-face convenings held at the University of Pittsburgh\, a schedule that will allow participants to learn advanced digital methods and project management skills while fostering a close-knit interdisciplinary community. By the end of the Workshop\, participants will have the expertise and support structure needed to conduct sophisticated research and build advanced projects at the intersection of network analysis and art history. \nThe NA+DAH workshop will welcome up to eight project teams (representing art historical\, technical\, and analytic expertise) for a series of in-person and video convenings\, with the expectation that teams will also be working and collaborating outside the convening framework to develop and advance their research projects. It is expected that this Getty Advanced Topics in Digital Art History Workshop will lead to a significant body of research and we anticipate a potential edited volume or online repository to share its results. \nEvent Descriptions\nConvening 1: The week-long “Digital Art History + Network Science Institute” will take place from Monday\, July 29–Friday\, August 2\, 2019. During this Institute\, participating teams will engage with the grand challenges in digital art history and network analysis\, and propose and structure a year-long research agenda (guided by expert facilitators) that uses network analysis to advance art historical inquiry. Potential research topics include museum provenance\, exhibition histories\, stylistic similarities\, and the history of the art market. Teams should begin working on their data and approaches in advance of the event\, as the convening will focus on aligning data with project research agendas. Up to three members per team will be supported to attend this convening. \nBetween Summer 2019 and Summer 2020\, the teams will continue to advance their research agendas. Each project team will participate in monthly meetings\, convened virtually\, to check in on progress and identify further resources as needed. These virtual meetings and related support will be facilitated by a research assistant and augmented by the expertise of the leadership team. \nConvening 2: The two-week-long “Co-Working Institute in Art History + Network Science” will take place from Monday June 22–Friday\, July 3\, 2020. This event will include a rigorous daily agenda consisting of continued training opportunities focused on the exact needs of the teams and current problems in the field\, ample project work time\, and daily keynote lectures by interdisciplinary experts that offer a larger\, field-wide picture. Up to four members per team will be supported to attend this convening. \nTo Apply\nWe encourage scholars to apply who are either already engaged in digital art history and wish to work with network analytic approaches in more depth\, or who are engaged in network science and seek to understand better how their expertise might be applied to art historical problems. Early\, mid\, and later-career academic scholars are all welcome to apply\, as are teams that include art museum professionals\, librarians\, advanced graduate students\, and others. Teams of at least three that are already formed will receive priority consideration\, particularly those demonstrating a pre-existing breadth of technical and art historical expertise. Individual scholars with a project in mind\, but who are not yet affiliated with a team\, are encouraged to contact the workshop organizers (na-dah@pitt.edu) early to seek assistance in finding potential collaborators with whom they can apply. \nMembers of the project teams (up to three participants for the 2019 Institute and four for the 2020 Co-Working Institute) will receive funding for travel to Pittsburgh\, lodging\, and a per diem rate for food. Additional team members may attend if self-funded. \nTo apply\, send a 500-word project proposal\, including a statement of the goals for the project\, with citations as appropriate (word count is exclusive of citations)\, as well as a brief description of the project team (no more than 300 words per person)\, their expertise(s)\, and a CV for each team member (including links to relevant previous or current digital projects) to na-dah@pitt.edu. Applications are due October 15\, 2018 and should be sent in PDF format only. \nOnce all the applications are reviewed\, those teams advancing for final consideration will be interviewed over video conferencing between November 5–16\, 2018. Acceptances will be sent by December 14\, 2018. \n\n\n\n\n\n URL:http://historicalnetworkresearch.org/event/network-analysis-digital-art-history-a-getty-advanced-workshop/ END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20190909 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20190913 DTSTAMP:20190626T161059 CREATED:20190325T124516Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190325T124516Z UID:70258-1567987200-1568332799@historicalnetworkresearch.org SUMMARY:Networks and the study of the human past - EUSN 2019\, 9-12 September Zurich DESCRIPTION:Organized session at the 4th European Conference on Social Networks (EUSN 2019)\n9-12 September 2019\, Zurich\, Switzerland (https://www.eusn2019.ethz.ch/) \n \nMost network research focuses on contemporary data and is presentist in orientation\, overlooking\nthe vast store of interesting data from the past. Over the last decades\, a substantial number of\nempirical studies have shown that both network theories and formal network methods can be\nproductively applied to (selected) bodies of historical and archaeological data. The aim of this\ninterdisciplinary session is to further extend the community of scholars in this field in Europe and\nbeyond by promoting contacts between the various disciplines that aim at making sense of past\nphenomena through methods and theories derived from network analysis and network science.\nWe are looking for papers exploring the challenges and potential posed by such network studies of\npast phenomena. Not exhaustive examples of such challenges and avenues include: incomplete and\nmissing data\, usually without the possibility to collect more data; big data analytics and\ntextual/semantic network analysis based on (fragmented) sources; material sources as proxy\nevidence for social phenomena; ability to explore long-term changes in past systems vs. the analysis\nof mid-term or short-term processes and the historicity of ties; etc.\nThe session invites contributions from researchers from various disciplines applying methods of\nformal network analysis and network science on the human past. We welcome submissions\nconcerning any period\, geographical area or topic. The authors may be archaeologists\, historians\,\nsocial scientists as well as scholars from other disciplines working with historical or archaeological data. \nTopics might include but are not limited to: \n\npast revolutions;\nmigration;\nindustrial revolution;\ndiffusion processes;\ntransitions from authoritarianism to democracy and back;\ntrade;\nkinship;\nwar;\nreligion and\nscience.\n\n \nTo be eligible\, the proposals should: \n\nAddress and clearly formulate research questions concerning past phenomena.\nCritically address issues related to the sources/materials/construction of data used.\nExplain why it is substantively interesting to consider their topic in formal network terms.\nElaborate what the added value of such a relational view is\, and what methodological and theoretical choices it implies.\n\nThe paper proposals for the session will be selected by an interdisciplinary committee with expertise in doing network analysis and network science in the fields of archaeology\, history\, sociology\, political science and religious studies. \nAbstract submission: \nThe deadline for submission is April 12.

Passive understanding of French is sufficient (but necessary) to submit.\nAll the best\,\nCL.\nPS: If you think that having conferences in languages other than English is a problem\, please save us another public discussion of the topic on this list: the two points of view have already been expressed when I posted a similar call in the past. I think that we are all aware of the pros and cons.\n\n\n\n\nAppel à communications pour la Cinquième rencontre du groupe Res-Hist (Réseaux & Histoire) « La personne en question dans les réseaux »\nRennes\, 17-18 octobre 2019 \nCréé en 2013\, le groupe Res-Hist est un collectif destiné à favoriser les échanges scientifiques des historien·ne·s travaillant sur les réseaux. Il organise des rencontres qui réunissent\, autour d’une thématique donnée\, les chercheur·se·s qui mettent en œuvre des analyses de réseaux dans leurs travaux\, quels que soient les périodes étudiées\, les objets d’analyse\, l’état d’avancement des travaux ou le niveau d’études. Les précédentes rencontres à Nice (en 2013 puis en 2016)\, Toulouse (2014) et Paris (2015) ont permis à des spécialistes venus de différents horizons de se rencontrer et d’échanger\, à la fois en termes épistémologiques\, méthodologiques et techniques.\nDans le sillage de ces premières manifestations\, nous organisons une cinquième rencontre du groupe Res-Hist les 17 et 18 octobre 2019 à l’Université Rennes 2\, en partenariat avec la MSHB et l’URFIST\, trois institutions qui valorisent les recherches sur les humanités numériques. Notre initiative est également soutenue par le GDR Analyse de réseaux en Sciences humaines et sociales. Nous proposons que les contributeurs et contributrices de ces journées discutent une thématique précise : « La personne en question dans les réseaux ». Les travaux historiques qui mobilisent les techniques spécifiques d’analyse de réseaux envisagent en effet souvent dans leurs analyses des « personnes ». Dans la majorité de ces travaux\, ces personnes – comprises comme des individus – interviennent en tant qu’entités (réseaux de correspondance\, d’intellectuels et de savants\, de marchands\, d’évêques\, de nobles ou de paysans\, réseaux égocentrés)\, une démarche aujourd’hui intuitivement compréhensible par référence aux réseaux sociaux numériques (Facebook\, Twitter\, etc).\nDepuis quelques années toutefois\, certains types de recherche s’interrogent davantage sur l’usage historique que l’on peut faire des « personnes ». Depuis les travaux précurseurs de John Padgett sur les Médicis\, plusieurs historien·ne·s diluent ou dépassent en effet ces personnes\, en focalisant leur analyse sur des entités-groupes (familiaux\, religieux\, économiques\, associatifs) : les individus sont ainsi réduits à  représenter une entité plus globale\, que certain.e.s sociologues qualifient de « cercles sociaux ou collectifs » qui dépassent les relations interpersonnelles qui le forment. Dans une perspective prosopographique\, d’autres chercheur.se.s travaillent moins sur des « personnes » que sur des réseaux de « noms »\, de « titres » ou d’« attributs » qui renvoient certes parfois à des individus précis\, mais qui ne peuvent être identifiés qu’en passant par les occurrences\, c’est-à-dire par des réseaux de mots. Dans certains de ces travaux\, consacrés à des sociétés polythéistes\, les noms ne renvoient d’ailleurs pas toujours à des individus\, mais à des puissances divines formant un système que le réseau permet d’analyser (réseaux de dieux et déesses scandinaves ou réseaux d’épithètes divines largement répandues dans le monde antique). Dans d’autres études\, qui portent sur les situations de clandestinité à la période contemporaine\, on peut s’interroger sur la manière adéquate d’associer ou de distinguer l’individu et son nom de couverture pour rendre compte au mieux des liens sociaux vécus ou supposés par les autorités. Enfin\, dans certains travaux plus spatialisés\, les personnes ne sont plus des entités\, mais interviennent en tant que liens\, par exemple dans les flux entre deux lieux (flux d’intellectuels\, de marchands ou d’ambassadeurs).\nNous souhaiterions que les intervenant.e.s s’interrogent ainsi sur l’usage qu’ils/elles font des « personnes » dans les réseaux qu’ils/elles reconstituent et analysent. Quelle place leur réservent-ils/elles\, en tant qu’entités ou liens ? L’analyse se situe-t-elle au niveau de la personne/individu\, la dépasse-t-elle parfois pour s’intéresser plutôt à des « cercles sociaux » ? Qu’est-ce qui justifie de choisir un autre niveau d’analyse : en quoi est-ce un gain et/ou une perte d’informations ? Comment mettre en œuvre concrètement – c’est-à-dire d’un point de vue méthodologique et pratique\, grâce à certains outils – la prise en compte d’entités-personnes et d’entités-cercles sociaux ? Dans les enquêtes prosopographiques ou dans les études des relations de parenté à partir des noms (A\, fils de B)\, quels sont les arguments qui autorisent à passer des occurrences à l’individu sur le plan méthodologique ? Quand on traite les sources enfin\, comment tenir compte des identités personnelles duales\, associant un nom de naissance et un nom choisi au cours de la vie – que l’on songe aux changements de noms des candidats à la cléricature dans le christianisme\, aux résistant.e.s souvent évoqué.e.s à travers un pseudonyme\, ou encore aux personnes contraintes à changer d’identité pour échapper à la mort ?\nCe sont ces interrogations\, et sans doute beaucoup d’autres\, que soulève le thème de « la personne en question dans les réseaux ». Il s’agit en effet par là de poser plus largement le problème de l’accès à l’individu à travers des sources distinctes et des époques diverses\, en valorisant les réponses que l’analyse de réseaux et les approches quantitatives peuvent y apporter. En définitive\, le thème soulève la question fondamentale de la manière dont on pense\, à travers un réseau\, certaines catégories\, qu’elles soient sociales\, économiques\, juridiques\, onomastiques\, familiales\, etc.\, en articulation avec les types documentaires auxquels on est confronté.e. \nNous invitons donc les chercheur.se.s qui mettent à profit la notion de réseaux dans leurs recherches à participer à ces rencontres. À côté de l’objet de l’étude et des résultats obtenus\, il s’agit de placer au cœur de la réflexion la manière dont ils/elles traitent les personnes dans leurs analyses (en tant qu’entités – globales ou pas –\, en tant que liens\, etc.\,). Les propositions d’intervenant.e.s des précédentes rencontres Res-Hist tout comme celles de chercheur.se.s qui n’y ont pas assisté sont les bienvenues.\nSelon la formule consacrée lors des précédentes journées Res-Hist\, les intervenants fourniront un texte (déjà publié ou non) qui sera mis en ligne à l’avance et présenteront leurs propos oralement en 20 minutes maximum\, qui seront suivies par 30 minutes de débat et d’échange avec la salle. Des présentations par des invité.e.s et des ateliers de formation à l’analyse de réseaux et à ses logiciels seront également proposés avant les rencontres.\nLes propositions de communication\, d’une longueur d’une page et accompagnées des nom\, statut et adresse mail\, devront être adressées avant le 31 mars 2019 par courriel à Karine Karila-Cohen (karine.karila-cohen@univ-rennes2.fr) et à Isabelle Rosé (rosisa@wanadoo.fr). Le résultat de la sélection sera communiqué à la fin du mois de mai 2019\, après examen par le conseil scientifique. Les textes présentés seront fournis avant le 1er  septembre 2019. L’organisation prendra en charge une à deux nuitées\, dans certains cas\, et la plupart des repas au cours de la rencontre. Les frais de transport sont à la charge des intervenant.e.s ou de leur laboratoire.\nCette initiative est possible grâce au soutien du LAHM-CReAAH (Université Rennes 2 / UMR 6566)\, de Tempora (Université Rennes 2)\, de l’UFR Sciences sociales et l’Université Rennes 2\, de l’URFIST\, de la MSHB et du GDR CNRS Analyse de réseaux en SHS. \nComité scientifique\nL.
