On Friday 16 June 2017 (from 10:30 - 16:30), as part of the Doctoral School "Loading: Methods and approaches in Digital Humanities", a toolbox session on Network Analysis in Digital Humanities will take place. In this course we will discuss both theoretical, practical and technical aspects to using a network approach in DH research. You will learn what network analysis is and how you can possibly integrate into your research. In addition there will be a tutorial on the tool- UCINET, where you will learn some basics of visualizing and analysis of networks.
The session will be taught by Dr. Julie M. Birkholz
Please download in advance UCINET- https://sites.google.com/site/ucinetsoftware/downloads. The trail version is the full version free for 60 days.
