Social and Political Networks

Dates:
  • Mon 05 Oct 2020 15.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-10-05 15:00 2020-10-05 17:00 Europe/Paris Social and Political Networks

This objective of this course is to introduce researchers to social network analysis, with special emphasis on applications in sociology and political science. This is both a theory and a methods course. In a typical week we read two articles about networks of people, organizations, and countries. One article introduces a theoretical concept, key hypothesis, notion or insight from social network analysis. During the first hour of each meeting we discuss this theoretical article. The other article is of an empirical/methodological nature and test the hypothesis from the theoretical article or applies its network-analytic technique in some social or political context. In many cases this is a top journal article with available data and code for replication and extended analysis. The second part of each meeting is a virtual lab; we look at the data, practice the methods using social network analysis software (through instructor screen-sharing in Zoom).
