Dear Ion,

I and a few others have been working on this network for some time, although not exactly the one offered by the E-Enlightenment project. Stanford used their, and other, metadata in the Mapping the Republic of Letters project (http://republicofletters.stanford.edu/). Another project out of Oxford, Cultures of Knowledge (http://www.culturesofknowledge.org/) has been working on a catalog of letter metadata (http://emlo.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/) with 60,000 letters, and is still growing. The CKCC in the Netherlands (http://ckcc.huygens.knaw.nl/) has built a tool allowing the browsing of about 20,000 letters (http://ckcc.huygens.knaw.nl/epistolarium/#), and a fairly sparse and poorly formatted catalog of about a million letters held in Dutch libraries also exists in database form as the CEN (http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=nl&u=https://blog.associatie.kuleuven.be/peterverbist/cen-catalogus-epistolarum-neerlandicarum/&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dcen%2Bepistolarum%26espv%3D210%26es_sm%3D93). 

I have a (still very drafty) forthcoming article on a preliminary analysis of the various datasets here (http://www.scottbot.net/HIAL/?page_id=40149), if you're interested in more details.

Unfortunately, none of the datasets are currently openly accessible, although from my experience, the groups are amenable to collaboration.

Best,
Scott B. Weingart

Dear All

 

Oxford University Press’s ‘Electronic Enlightenment’ Project is being billed as offering an in-depth view into ‘the first global social network’ – see http://www.e-enlightenment.com/. However, OUP does not seem to offer any social network model that could be analyzed (although what is on offer is most definitely raw data that could be used to develop such a model). Does anyone know whether OUP is actually developing one, or whether anyone else is working on this?

 

Thanks

 

Ion Georgiou
