The Historical Network Research Community
This website is a platform for scholars to present their work, enable collaboration and provide those new to network analysis with some helpful first information.
The roots of HNR go back to the year 2009 when Ulrich Eumann, Martin Stark, Linda von Keyserlingk-Rehbein and Marten Düring decided to organise a workshop for historians interested in social network analysis. Over the years, the HNR community grew from a small workshop series for German-speaking historians to a more internationally oriented community of scholars from different academic disciplines who are linked by their shared interest in the analysis of historical networks. Today, the HNR community organises workshops, conferences, lectures, an open access journal, a newsletter, a Slack group and a research bibliography.
Over the years, many scholars have volunteered their time, energy and ideas to make HNR events happen and to support the services we provide. We welcome anyone who is motivated to play an active part in this community – get in touch!
The work for the HNR Community is a collaborative effort. For specific inquiries, however, we encourage you to reach out to the respective contact points:
