The TDH Spring Lectures: “Tudor Networks of Power”

Posted March 29th, 2016 at 8:56 am.

Ruth Ahnert (School of English, Queen Mary University of London) and Sebastian Ahnert (Department of Physics, University of Cambridge) will discuss their collaborative project, which seeks to reconstruct the evidence for Tudor government networks that survives in the state papers archive (now digitized at State Papers Online). By analyzing the metadata from these 132,000 letters, they are able both to map the social network implicated in this correspondence, and to measure the relative centrality of each of its members using a range of mathematical tools.

At Bryn Mawr and Haverford, April 11th, 4:30 pm, Thomas Library 224, BMC

At Swarthmore, April 12, noon, McCabe Library Popular Reading Room
