Theorizing Networks in World History

This is a past event.

In history, a “network” or “web” is a vague reference to connections among humans or their institutions (J. and W. McNeill, 2003). Here, a theory for historical networks is constructed from existing theories of networks and group behavior. The presentation by Patrick Manning outlines historical network theory and interprets local and global cases in world history.

Dr. Patrick Manning is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of World History, Emeritus at the University of Pittsburgh. He served from 2008 to 2015 as founding director of the World History Center.

This event is part of a series titled "The Limits of Networks in World History: Peripheries and Beyond."
