Dr Máirín MacCarron has recently returned from a week-long workshop on network science in Porto Alegre, Brazil, as part of her collaborative project, Women, Conflict and Peace: Gendered Networks in Early Medieval Narratives, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. She was joined by the project PI, Prof. Julia Hillner (University of Sheffield), and they were hosted by Prof. Ana Bazzan (Computer Science) and Prof. Sílvio Dahmen and Prof. Sandra Prado (Physics) at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sol. The Gendered Networks project aims to reveal how late antique and early medieval authors constructed and described the networks between characters in their texts, and what role they assigned to women and men in these networks, using qualitative, quantitative and digital methodologies.
