Networking the Early Stuart Diplomatic Service: An Introduction (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Networking the Early Stuart Diplomatic Service: An Introduction
Author: Thea Lindquist
Abstract: The project focuses on a prosopography of the early Stuart diplomatic service (1603-1649) and networks among its members. The author described how she gathers, structures, analyzes, and visualizes biographical data associated with early Stuart diplomatic representatives. Discovering the patterns and connections in this data can help answer questions related to the increasing professionalization of the diplomatic service, among others. Learning more about factors such as the diplomats’ educational preparation, social status and mobility, career paths, and religious and political networks can provide a fuller and more nuanced understanding of the service’s evolution as an institution, as well as its role in operationalizing English foreign policy in this key period leading up to the Civil War and Interregnum. The project data are drawn from heterogeneous sources. One of the project’s goals is to produce a combined, enhanced data set on early Stuart diplomats to which related projects can readily link via standard identifiers and common data structures. The author presented her on-going project, the current state of her research, and shared preliminary results in this poster session.
