How are networks created and shaped?
Open course/workshop for researchers and PhD students Thursday and 16-17 May 2013
Although modern social network analysis originated in the 1930s, the last twenty years has seen dramatic growth in innovative network methods to understand the structure of a network-based social system. Central questions include how best to describe a social network structure, how to identify structural regularities in a system, how to infer the social processes that sustain a system, and what are the likely outcomes at both system-level and for the individuals within the system. By participating in this course/workshop, you will acquire understanding on how state-of-the-art analyses can be used to better understand what local-level processes that give rise to emergent larger-scale network structures.
