The Programme of Postgraduate Studies «The Ancient Mediterranean World – History and Archaeology» (Department of History & Archaeology, University of Crete) and the Institute for Mediterranean Studies invite you to a workshop on the employment of Social Network Analysis theory in history. The Workshop will be held at the Institute for 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.

You are all welcome! Participants please visit https://goo.gl/jaaNjH for supportive material. Please bring, if you may, a laptop. In order to gain a better sense of numbers, please contact Katerina Panagopoulou, panagop@uoc.gr, ideally until Monday, April 1st, 2019, at 20.00.

Participants include, in addition to colleagues of the University of Crete and of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies: Prof. Diane Harris Cline (GWU, Washington DC, 2018-2019 Fulbright Fellow at the University of Crete), Prof. Eric Cline (GWU, Washington DC), Dr. Johannes Preiser-Kapeller (Academy of Sciences, Vienna, & University of Vienna), Dr. Katerina Mitsiou (University of Vienna).

The Symposium will focus on emotions and their definition and reception by ancient and/or modern authors. It aims in the first place to illuminate through a comparative conversation the specificity of “ancient” lists of emotions and the way they differ from “modern” definitions of feelings and their practice. It looks to interrogate the Aristotelian dimension of persuasive and collective pathκ and the inner and private feelings of modern times.

Our investigation will also turn attention to representations of states of emotions and their cultural significance in historiography, philosophy, drama and literature and the way they have been formulated by historians and literary critics.

Speakers include: David Bouvier (Lausanne), Douglas Cairns (Edinburgh), Sotera Fornaro (Sassari), Margaret Graver (Hanover,NH), Geneviève Hoffmann (Amiens), Sally C. Humphreys (Budapest), Ahuvia Kahane (London), David Konstan , Glenn Most.
