We are excited to share the news: after a careful assessment of over 70 applications, the DISSINET team has been assembled. With our new members on board, we embark on our quest to reconfigure the study of medieval dissidence and inquisition, and to break new ground on premodern covert networks, the emergence of religion and other social phenomena from local interactions, and complex data collection and analysis in historical and social scientific research. We have hired brilliant people that the project, the Centre for the Digital Research of Religion, the Department for the Study of Religions, and the whole Masaryk University can be proud of:
José Luis Estévez, sociologist – SNA specialist;
Tomáš Hampejs, computational social scientist;
Jolana Navrátilová, managing assistant;
Katia Riccardo, historian, PhD candidate in the study of religions;
Davor Salihović, historian;
Robert L. J. Shaw, historian, deputy PI;
Kaarel Sikk, geospatial data analyst;
David Zbíral, historian of religions, PI.
You can find out more about us on the Team page.
We are currently searching to extend the team and find two new members, a computational linguist / NLP specialist and a historian, so there is still time to apply!
