Social Network Analysis in Social Media

11 June 2018, 11:30 - 15:30

S3, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road

Led by Dr Hugo Leal (CRASSH)

This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to the field of Social Network Analysis, giving participants the opportunity to “learn by doing” the process of network data collection and analysis. After being introduced to the basic concepts, the participants will have the opportunity to explore all stages of a social network analysis (SNA) project, including research design, essential measures, data collection and data analysis. The focus will be on the retrieval of electronic archival data (websites, Youtube, Twitter and Facebook) for non-programmers and on the conduction of network analysis with specialised software, namely Gephi (open-source), UCINET and NodeXL. At the end, the participants will be equipped with the basic tools to perform meaningful visualisations and analyses of social network data.

Please bring your own laptop with a working version of Gephi for the lab session.

Pre-registration is essential - please book online here or use the online registration link on this page.
