[From SIGCIS, already bubbling with suggestions. - WM]

Dear Colleagues,

A little query sent across the lockdowns and quarantines: Can anyone
recommend scholarship on the tree-style diagrams that circulate both in
computer science and a wide range of other fields, for example,
genealogy, kinship? Is there any good work on the history of these
diagrams, their intersection, and what they might say about possible
links in styles of reasoning across fields that might, otherwise, seem

Thanks for your thoughts,
