Virginia L. Campbell, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at Leeds, will will be presenting a paper on social network analysis in Pompeii.
Dr. Virginia L. Campbell (University of Leeds), will be giving the final lecture in the research seminar series Pompeii: The Present and Future of Vesuvian Research with a paper entitled 'Sex degrees of Separation.'
Dr. Campbell holds a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship for her project 'Social Network Analysis in Pompeii.' Her work on the tombs of Pompeii led to an interest in the epigraphic evidence from Pompeii and how this can be examined to explore the connectedness of the community. One of her recent publications, 'Menedemerumenus: tracing the routes of Pompeian graffiti writers,' Tyche (2012), demonstrates one way the graffiti can be used to study networks in an ancient city. Her blog further documents her initial work on this project.
