Social Network Analysis Workshop Series - August 2020

July 27, 2020

In collaboration with the Office of Research & Innovation, the Social Science Research Committee (SSRC) will offer three workshops on social network analysis via Zoom, as part of SSRC's computational social science initiative:

Introduction to R for social network analysis
Tuesday, August 4, 2020
10:00am to 12:00pm

Individuals within networks - centrality and hypothesis testing
Tuesday, August 11, 2020
10:00am to 12:00pm

Properties of whole networks and network comparison
Tuesday, August 18, 2020
10:00am to 12:00pm

Our speaker will be Dr. Eric Brewe, Associate Professor of Physics and Science Education.  Eric has done extensive research on social network analysis and has given trainings on this methodology in various places.  Because Eric will use R to demonstrate social network concepts, measurements, graphing, and analysis, we encourage you to attend the R workshop on Tuesday, August 4th.

If interested, please REGISTER no later than Aug 3, 2020. We will send registered participants a Zoom link and a short survey before the retreat.

If you are interested in joining the 365 Group (on Outlook) of the Social Science Research Committee to receive information related to social science research, please contact Christine Chang at

The Social Science Research Committee (SSRC) aims at building a vibrant social science research community at Drexel University. We are open to faculty members who are interested in human social behavior from all academic fields. In the past year, we have organized method training, civic engagement research forum, visit to DC to meet federal grant officers, writing retreats, etc. We are planning activities to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between social and natural/engineering sciences, longer-term collaboration between faculty and interested undergraduate students, etc.
