About complexity science and social systems

How can complexity science help us better understand past and present complex social systems as diverse as online social networks or the Roman economy? This half-day workshop will explore the role complexity science, and in particular its use of network approaches, can play for the study of the human present and past.

Complexity science is now a thriving field and its application for the study of the human past shows huge potential. This workshop will explore this potential.
