Tudor Networks of Power

Event Description:
The TDH Spring Lectures: “Tudor Networks of Power” Swarthmore this Tuesday, April 12th at noon in McCabe Library’s Popular Reading Room. 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.
