    Introduction to Social Network Analysis

    • Time: All Day
    • The field of social network analysis is based on the sociological insight that the social world is relational. Rather than focusing on the attributes of individuals, social network analysis examines the patterning of relationships between individuals and groups to understand social action. Quantifying these relationships allows us to explore how social ties provide both opportunities and constraints across the life course. Over the past twenty-five years, largely due to the increased availability of specialized software, there has been a proliferation of research using social network analysis in many fields, including business, public policy, public health and education. This short course will provide you with the skills to read, evaluate and contribute to this literature. We will cover the design, collection, analysis and interpretation of both whole and ego-centred network data.

      In person in Calgary | October 14-15, 2022
