About this event
Identifying and Tracking Ideas Across Historical Communities: A Quantitative Analysis of Early Modern Quaker Networks
The event will be an online presentation followed by a question and answer session.
Dr Mark J. Hill is a Lecturer in Computational Social Science at the University of Kent. His research interests cover the intersection between Digital Humanities and Intellectual History with a focus on the robust methodological application of the former onto the latter. His current research project reconstructs and examines historical social networks with an aim to better understand their dynamic role in political change.
This talk will focus on his paper that makes use of social network analysis and quantitative text analysis to identify discursive historical communities. In doing so it demonstrates how written works had distinct linguistic features tied to specific historical groups – even when topics and themes between groups were similar.
