Resumé | Abstract

This article situates itself within the growing field of digital heritage and will explore methods for digital representation of historical network. This includes a social family network as it is typically presented in a genealogical structure, consisting of all family members, as well as a network created by hyperlinks and linked data on Wikipedia. It uses the family tree of the Drachmann family in 19th century Copenhagen as a case to explore and compare these networks in a digital framework.

It will use the potential conflicts between Actor-Network Theory and Feminist Theory to frame this discussion.
