Tomáš Diviák joins the DISSINET team.
The Centre for the Digital Research of Religion (CEDRR) at Masaryk University, Faculty of Arts, Department for the Study of Religions is an interdisciplinary centre applying computational methods in research into religion. It represents a focal point of competence in Computational and Digital Humanities at Masaryk University and hosts the Generative Historiography of Religion Project (GEHIR), the Dissident Networks Project (DISSINET), the Cultural Evolution of Moralizing Religions in the Ancient Mediterranean (CEMRAM), as well as several other research endeavours. It makes use of various computational approaches ranging from network analysis and quantitative text analysis through geographic information science to agent-based modelling, set in the broader framework of computational social science. Within the Study of Religions Ph.D. curriculum, CEDRR allows students to combine competence in computational techniques with solid domain knowledge in their respective areas of expertise.
