Abstract

In September 2019, the Seshat Global History Databank began a long-term collaboration with the Complexity Science Hub, forming a new Research Group on Social Complexity and Collapse. This unique databank serves as a massive repository of structured data about the evolution of past societies. It captures information on sociopolitical organization, religion, warfare, technology, and agriculture for a global sample of societies from the Neolithic to the Industrial Revolution. Jenny Reddish, Lead Editor for the project, will give a brief introduction to how Seshat works, how we’re trying to bridge the gap between the sciences and the humanities, and what our research goals are for the future.
