Introduction to Network Analysis: Basic Concepts, Applications, and Tools

What comes to mind when you hear the term network? The Internet? Facebook? Multiple computers sharing information? What if I told you there was a whole realm of scholarship where researchers explore the patterns of interaction in and among networks in their many forms? Network analysis is a research method that scholars in disciplines from public health, to business, to sociology and etc. use to explore and visualize relationships between objects, entities, or people. In this workshop we will take an introductory look at this concept and the basic underlying components of the method as well as discuss some ways that researchers are currently using the method. We’ll also identify types of online tools and software, discuss how to choose the best option for you, and construct a basic data set in excel. Finally, we will have demo of free and open source network visualization software Gephi. This is a basic introduction, no prior experience is necessary. Attendees may wish to bring a laptop to follow along with the demo.
