    This conference aims to bring together researchers applying network analysis to pre-modern manuscripts and manuscript texts. Key topics include: • Theoretical reflections on the challenges and advantages of applying network analysis, including social network analysis, to pre-modern written cultures; • Application of network analysis to corpora of pre-modern manuscripts and texts; • Network analysis as a means of understanding the circulation of texts and transmission of knowledge in the pre-modern period; • Quantitative study of networks of medieval book exchange and letter exchange; • Network analysis as a tool of textual criticism and text editing; • Network graphs as stemmata of texts and genres with complex textual history; • Networks of co-citation of pre-modern authors and authoritative texts; • Networks of co-occurrence and compilation of texts in medieval manuscripts; • Network analysis as a tool for the study of annotation practices and commentary traditions in pre-modern manuscript cultures; • Network analysis as a tool for the study of citation and reception in pre-modern manuscript cultures.
