IT Training Room, Cambridge University Library, West Rd, Cambridge CB3 9DR

Cambridge Digital Humanities Training Course

This course 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 project, including research design, essential measures, data collection and data analysis. The focus will be on the retrieval of electronic archival data (e.g. websites, digital archives and social media platforms) for non-programmers and on the production of network analysis with specialised software (e.g. Gephi). At the end of the course, participants will be equipped with the basic tools to perform meaningful visualisations and analyses of network data.
