Digital Humanities: Ways Forward, A Conference in Honor of David Kammerling Smith (20 March 2021)
Breakout Session 1 (3:05-3:55 pm): Prosopography and Databases: Revolutionary Movement
"Adapting Prosopography to Interpret Eighteenth-Century Revolutionary Movements: Harmonia Universalis and Radical Translations" presented by David Armando (CNR), on behalf of Harmonia Universalis.
"Radical Translations" presented by EJ Mannucci (University of Bicocca-Milan) and Sanja Perovic (King’s College London).
This panel considers the use of prosopographical data-models to extend and refine our understanding of the nature and contexts of "revolutionary activity" in the late eighteenth/early nineteenth centuries. Prosopography is understood here as the investigation of the common characteristics of a group of people whose individual biographies may be largely untraceable or only indirectly known.
Moderator: Jeff Horn, Manhattan College
