Introduction to Network Graphs: Formatting Your Data
Network analysis facilitates the study of things (or “nodes”) and their connections to one another (called “edges”). Whether you’re exploring relationships in literary, social, or correspondence networks, network graphs help disentangle relationships. In this workshop, we’ll cover the basics of network analysis, the types of graphs you can create, where you can find formatted datasets, potential tools to build networks, recommended readings, a review of network analysis projects, and how you measure importance in a network. The hands-on portion of the workshop will focus on how to structure data to create both nodes and edges sheets for input into network analysis software (Cytoscape). This Workshop will be offered via Zoom. If you're registered, you'll receive the Zoom invitation information the day before the Workshop.
