        Subject: CFP historical and archaeological network research at EU SNA conference

It's with great pleasure that we can announce the first ever conference
session which is organized by the Res-Hist, The Connected Past and
the Historical Network Research group: 

Historical and Archaeological Network Research

Held at the EU SNA conference, June 14-17 2016 Paris.

Submission deadline 16 February 2016. Submissions via the conference
website. http://eusn2016.sciencesconf.org/89651 

Network analysis, be it inspired by sociology or physics, is making its way
in historical and archaeological research on all periods and topics. Over
the last decades, a substantial number of studies has shown that both
network theories and network methods derived from other disciplines can be
fruitfully applied to selected bodies of historical and archaeological data
and go beyond the metaphorical use of network-related metaphors. However,
most of this work has paid little attention to the specific challenges
skills of historical and archaeological research, e.g. concerns with
sources, missing data, data standardization, as well as the situation of
networks in time and space.

In recent years, a burgeoning community of historians and archaeologists
have taken on these challenges and begun to adapt and develop formal network
techniques to address the substantive questions and challenges key to their
disciplines. This has been made possible thanks to collaboration and
interaction with scholars from other disciplines.The aim of this session is
to further develop this community by promoting contacts between the various
disciplines that aim at making sense of past phenomena through methods
derived from network analysis; and between the various geographic and
language-based communities in Europe.

We welcome papers on any period, geographical area, and substantive topic,
using any network research method. The authors may by historians,
archaeologists, as well as scholars from other disciplines. To be eligible,
the proposals should:   

- Address and clearly formulate research questions concerning past

- Critically address issues related to the sources/materials/construction of
data used.

- Explain why it is substantively interesting to consider their topic in
formal network terms (i.e. as ties between nodes), what the added value of
such a view is, and what methodological choices it implies.

Papers which address questions related to time or space in networks are
encouraged but not a requirement.

This call for papers is jointly issued by The Connected Past, Historical
Network Research, and Res-Hist - but feel free to submit if you don't know
any of these groups! It will be an opportunity to meet them.

The working language for the conference will be English, but the organizers
will be happy to help those who do not feel confident with their English
during the discussions. Please note that the oral presentation will be short
(ca. 15 minutes, as there will be at least 4 papers per 2-hour time slot,
and we want to keep some time for discussion). 

The papers are not intended to be published together. Feel free to present
either work in progress, so as to receive useful suggestions, or work that
has already been published, but not in English or not widely circulated: the
EUSN will allow a wider audience to discover your research.

The proposals will be selected by: Tom Brughmans (University of Konstanz);
Marten Düring (CVCE, Luxembourg); Pierre Gervais (University Sorbonne
Nouvelle Paris 3, Paris); Claire Lemercier (CNRS, Sciences Po, Paris).

Proposals can be submitted via the conference website.
