*After Prosopography: Data modelling, models of history, and new 
directions for a scholarly genre*


Database technology profoundly altered the scope and power of the 
prosopography; more recently developed technologies have the potential 
to transform the genre yet again. Advances in the areas of digitised 
social network analysis, natural language processing, and ontological 
reasoning have the potential not only to extend the research reach and 
utility of the prosopography, but also to allow us to ask new questions 
of the past. The purpose of this paper is to outline these new 
technologies and tentatively to explore where these new questions might 
take us.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
