Event description

Description

Building on the success of the Symposium on network theories and practices held during the session 1, we have organized a follow-up workshop to deepen the topic.

The workshop, will be facilitated by Associate Professor Malcolm Alexander, and aims to provide practical insights into social network analysis (SNA). It is organized in two parts: its main component lasts from 9 am to 12.30 pm, but participants willing to apply the content of the workshop to their own research (or learn from others doing so) can also attend a 2 hours ‘practice’ session from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm.

The workshop will be held on the Gold Coast campus, and videoconferenced in the Lismore and Coffs campuses. You can also join the meeting via Zoom (https://scuonline.zoom.us/j/8540597089).

You are welcome to attend this workshop even if you have been unable to attend the Symposium. We nonetheless recommend that you familiarise yourself with the topic by reading the attached paper.

Associate Prof Malcolm Alexander is one of Australia’s leading sociologists working in the area of social network analysis and mathematical sociology. He made intensive studies of Australian business elite networks of the 1990s directed to public issues of corporate governance and investor capitalism. In recent years he has developed network analysis in new directions through his focus on 2-mode network mapping and investigations of elite networks in the civic cultures of Australian cities. He has published numerous articles in sociological journals, is the editor of two books and was also an editorial member of the Journal of Sociology and executive member and Treasurer of The Australian Sociological Association.
