Network Analysis

After taking a MOOC in Social Network Analysis (SNA) this past Fall, I’m interested in exploring network analysis further in the digital humanities. I not only wonder in what other ways the tools and theories of SNA might be extrapolated to examine literary networks (paratextual and intertextual), but I’m also interested in exploring social network analyses of digital humanities, so that we might analyze the myriad of growing networks. A careful analysis of such networks could show how networks grow, why, and help us determine why some networks fail to interact and impact with other similar networks in our field.

About Shawn Moore

I'm a graduate student, Ph.D., in the Department of English at Texas A&M University. I am also a fellow for the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture. My current research is investigating the sociability of dramatic closet dramas and philosophical treatises of early English Restoration women writers. By mapping the associations of integral networks of personal and intellectual nodes within private works of early women writers, especially Margaret Cavendish (1623-1673), I am trying to challenge the notion that sociable texts required sociable readerships.
