Event Details

The Historical Networks – Réseaux Historiques – Historische Netzwerke conference will take place at the University of Luxembourg, from Wednesday 30 June until Friday 2 July, 2021. The conference will run over three days opening with a workshop day and two conference days. We hope that the participants will be able to meet in person. Depending on the course of the Covid19 pandemic, the conference will be either realized as a hybrid (on-site + remote attendance and presentation) or a full online event. The decision about the format will be announced on 15 March, 2021.

Social network analysis theories and methods have emerged as a persuasive extension of purely metaphorical uses of network concepts in historical research. The HNR and the ResHist conference series explore the challenges and possibilities of network research in historical scholarship and serve as a platform for researchers from various disciplines to meet, present and discuss their latest research findings and to demonstrate tools and projects. 

The Historical Networks – Réseaux Historiques – Historische Netzwerke conference will be the first trilingual event in the field. The presenters will either speak English or offer extended abstract or slides in English, but those who wish to will be able to use French or German in presentations and discussions. The organizers and chairs will facilitate trilingual discussions.

Further information on the workshops will be provided shortly on http://hnr2021.historicalnetworkresearch.org/ 


Two confirmed keynotes will be delivered by Marion Maisonobe (https://www.parisgeo.cnrs.fr/spip.php?article8513&lang=en, CNRS, Paris) and Matteo Valeriani (https://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/users/valleriani, MPIWG, Berlin). The third keynote will be confirmed shortly. 


Participants are invited to take part in one or two of four half-day-workshops. Two of the workshops will be aimed at beginners, two at advanced practitioners of network analysis.  Workshop titles will be announced shortly.
