Network Analysis Workshop 2017

I regularly run workshops on humanities network analysis. For participants, I’ve compiled some starting instructions, sample data files, and suggested reading below.

Tools for Network Analysis

There are many options at various skill levels for humanists interested in network analysis. Here are just a few:

This Workshop: Gephi

For this workshop, we will be using Gephi, one of the most widely-used tools for network analysis and visualization. You will need to download and install the application before we can get started. If you find it runs slowly (or not at all) you might need to update Java on your system. There are some troubleshooting instructions about Java on Gephi’s website.

Workshop Data

Sample data can be found in this folder. You can download them all as a zip file or download files separately as we need them.
