Social Network Analysis: An Introductory Workshop -- May 24th
Social Network Analysis (SNA) has its origins in sociology and mathematics but is now used across a wide range of disciplines: from evaluating HIV/AIDS programmes to understanding the punk scene in Manchester to examining the reach of gangs or terrorist networks to looking at the barriers to business innovation.
The focus of SNA is on the connections that bind individuals together and how these set of relationships might combine to create emergent patterns of connections among people, groups and things. Social network analysts assume that such connections matter because they transmit behaviour, attitudes, information and goods. SNA offers a methodology to analyse these social relations and a method of making visible social structures that would otherwise remain opaque – it reveals what is hidden in plain sight.
Dr Paul Hepburn from the Heseltine Institute for Public Policy and Practice will lead this workshop with the aim of introducing the key concepts of SNA and illustrating how these may be applied by presenting some of his own research into online political networks. Additionally, we hope that this workshop will serve to establish a cross-disciplinary group of academics interested in exploring and, applying, SNA in more depth.
