As a think and do tank formed as a Community of Practice (CoP), the TransComs CoP is based on members active contribution, value creation, and participation in ongoing programs and projects. Below are summary descriptions of our active programs. The public directory is in early development. If you are already an active member you can click on the Collaboration Groups below to request joining the group.
The TransComs Community of Practice is effectively an evolving Cliodynamics
Commons. "Cliodynamics is a transdisciplinary area of research integrating cultural evolution, economic history/cliometrics, macrosociology, the mathematical modeling of historical processes... and the construction and analysis of historical databases. Cliodynamics treats history as science.
Its practitioners develop theories that explain such dynamical processes as the rise and fall of empires, population booms and busts, spread and disappearance of religions. These theories are translated into mathematical models. Finally, model predictions are tested against data. Thus, building and analyzing massive databases of historical and archaeological information is one of the most important goals of cliodynamics." — Wikipedia
