Event description

Description

Interested in emerging analytical techniques in qualitative research? Does your research involve the analysis of connectivities, networks or relationships between people, places, organisations or ideas? Are you looking for ways to creatively represent complex relational data? Then you might be interested in the School of Languages and Cultures' Perspectives on the Past (PoP) Masterclass on Social Network Analysis on 12 March, 2018.

This whole-day Masterclass is designed for students undertaking social, historical and cultural research who are interested in learning new techniques to analyse relational data. Social Network Analysis (SNA) is a broad-based methodological approach that sees the world as constructed in terms of relationships - whether those relationships are between individuals, institutions or ideas. SNA uses software to graphically represent relationship structures in network formations and analyse those structures to determine the underlying dynamics informing those networks. SNA is used increasingly widely in disciplines including sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, literary studies, history and archaeology.

Participants in this Masterclass will be given a thorough grounding in the principles of SNA and the opportunity to test the utility of a network-based approach for their own research interests. The facilitators of the Masterclass are some of the world’s leading experts in SNA including Professor Philippa Pattison, Professor Garry Robins and Dr Malcolm Alexander.

The Masterclass includes a short program of pre-reading in SNA, presentations by each of the facilitators on SNA methods and methodologies as well as practical experience in applying these approaches to real-world research problems.

The Masterclass is limited to 15 HDR students from any Faculty at USyd. For further information please contact Greg Doyle: gdoy3111@uni.sydney.edu.au
