A New Tool for Analyzing Cultural Mobility

A dataset on the birth and death locations of distinguished individuals over 2,000 years is providing insights into cultural mobility, a new study reports. To better understand the spread of disease, the rise of conflict, and the evolution of cities, researchers have needed a way to quantitatively analyze the impact of individual historical developments on societal practices. They used the migration patterns of more than 150,000 notable individuals, as represented by their birth and death locations, and suggest that the consistent global patterns uncovered with their framework will help provide guidance with respect to predicting growth, size and distance distributions going forward, as well as better interpreting of cultural phenomena.
