Historical Network research lunch lecture
Apr 14, 2021 -
Ramona Roller presents how to treat time in a letter correspondence network of the Reformation.
The Reformation is characterised by frequent letter correspondences between scholars which can be modeled as a network. Letters have sending dates, providing a temporal order for the spread of ideas and routes of influence. This temporal order of letters affects network measures and therefore has to be considered in network analyses. I show how to address this challenge by using pathpy a software to analyse temporal networks.
The lunch lecture series of the Historical Network Research community addresses network analyses for historical networks.
