Republicans of Letters

Published on

These are the slides from my talk, "Republicans of Letters: Historical Social Networks and the Early American Foreign Service Database," given at Brown University on January 26, 2011. I discussed data visualization, digital tools for tracing historical networks, and my work on Project Quincy, DAVILA, and The Early American Foreign Service Database.

Some slides are rather information rich, so if something interests you, hit pause!
