In a 2018 piece published in

*Poetics*I adapted an approach to computing “reflective centralities” in two-mode data developed by Hidalgo & Hausmann (2009)—hereafter HH—to generalize basic formal notions in the study of cultural taste. Namely, “omnivorousness” on the side of people and “popularity” on the side of genres. The…### Implementation of Kovacs’s Generalized Model of Relational Similarity for R

In an insightful, and somewhat overlooked paper published in

*Social Networks*, Kovacs (2010) introduced a generalized relational similarity measure based on iterated correlations, applicable to two-mode and one-mode network data. This post provides a brief description of Kovacs’s approach, and introduces an…### Temporal Cultural Hole Bridging
