Social Networks of Athenian Potters (SNAP): Networks, Tradition and Innovation in Communities of Artists

The development of methods to study communities of potters in Ancient Greece to better understand the role that individuals played and how artistic ideas were transmitted over space and time.  

With a NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Level I Grant, our team will produce a network-based model for studying communities of potters in ancient Greece. Our project, Social Networks of Athenian Potters (SNAP), employs Social Network Analysis (SNA) to map for the first time in a relational database the ties among potters in Archaic and Classical Athens (600-400 BCE). The social network graphs (sociograms) and their digital platform offer an innovative approach to explore artists’ roles based on their position and how communities of potters are structured in periods of traditional practice versus experimentation. Our goals for the 12-month grant period are to: 1) complete all data collection to populate existing database and data formatting for Social Network Analysis for the Athenian potters; 2) disseminate our preliminary results through a project website, a workshop, and an open-access publication; and 3) plan its digital platform for our relational database.
