Introducción: ¿en qué punto se encuentra el análisis de redes en Historia?

Abstract : The concept of network has largely been adopted in the vocabulary of social sciences. Historical research using the vocabulary of networks has often been associated to a “micro” approach aiming to highlight individual agency. Since 1990 a more formalized approach to network analysis has unevenly appeared, depending on the linguistic area, in other historical research based, on the contrary, on systematic macro scale observations. After 30 years of integrating the questions and the methods of the network approach into historical research it is possible to observe the emergence of a true “savoir faire” of historians as current historical research mobilizing the network approach can demonstrate. However, although the interest of applying a network approach in certain specific domains has been largely shown, there is still little dialog among researchers who practice it. By showing the relations and the differences between texts coming from different countries and diversified sub-disciplines we wish to contribute to such dialogue.
