This workshop will explore how networks can be incorporated into research in the humanities. We will discuss the basics of network analysis, finding and preparing network datasets, types and methods of measurements, and techniques for creating attractive visualizations.
Participants will learn how to use Gephi, an open source program for network visualization and analysis, and the workshop will conclude with a planning activity for possible future research involving networks.
