you should look at the project Mapping the he Republic of Letters in Stanford (https://republicofletters.stanford.edu/). For an overview of the field and applications to history, a good starting point is http://www.insna.org/pubs/bibliography/.

Dear all,

I'm new to this mailing list and seek the wisdom of the crowd:
For my PhD thesis I'm working with the diaries of Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826) which are encoded in TEI-XML[1] and are richly annotated with names of persons, places, works etc. Moreover, I have additional information about the (or: most) mentioned people (age, sex, etc.) so my feeling is that this data is very well suited for applying social network analysis.

Beeing new to this field I made myself familiar with some introductory literature to (historical) social network analysis but haven't found anything yet with regard to historical diaries.

Any pointers are highly appreciated!

Best regards
Peter
