Subject: Connected Past videos online now
Two months ago we organised 'The Connected Past: people, networks and complexity in archaeology and history' in Southampton. We are delighted to let you know that the recorded presentations are now available on The Connected Past website: http://connectedpast.soton.ac.uk/recorded-presentations/
The talks are illustrative of the wide range of topics by scholars from an equally diverse range of disciplines. There are videos with a methodological focus, some with a theoretical focus and a number of applied case studies. If these talks taught us anything it would be that ‘Thinking through networks’ might provide innovative and useful approaches to understanding the past, but some methods are more promising than others and the theoretical implications deserve our attention. Networks are not everything but they might be useful and we hope that The Connected Past allowed for this idea to emerge and will continue to provide a multi-disciplinary discussion platform.
We hope you enjoy these recordings and we will be in touch about the future of The Connected Past soon.
Tom Brughmans, Anna Collar and Fiona Coward
