The Programme of Postgraduate Studies «The Ancient Mediterranean World - History and Archaeology» (Department of History & Archaeology, University of Crete) and the Institute of Mediterranean Studies invite you to a workshop on the employment of Social Network Analysis theory in history. The Workshop will be held Wednesday April 3rd 2019 at the Institute of Mediterranean Studies (Nikiforou Foka 130 & Ioannou Melissinou) in Rethymno / Crete, at 09.30-20.30.

Social Network Analysis is a method rapidly gaining ground in the humanities in recent years. In this Workshop the key strands of this method will be presented; we will explore its potential and we will highlight its weaknesses. In the two Discussion Sessions, in the afternoon, participants will learn how to use related software and how to visualise and analyse social networks. No prior knowledge of the theory is required.
