Networked Humanities

Networks reveal patterns in people, places, time, and space

The Demos Project studies emergent network methodologies in the humanities. Through our research, we engage with the following questions:

  • What can networks tell us about people and their societies?
  • What happens when we put data-driven, interdisciplinary humanistic methods in dialogue with each other?
  • How does the study of non-human actors influence our thinking about humanistic problems?
  • How do networked behaviors, like citing and referencing, perpetuate self-reinforcing trends?
  • How do networks dis/allow us to organize and interpret information about the world?
