Beyond Social Networks: Advanced Uses of Gephi in Humanities Research

Beyond Social Networks: Advanced Uses of Gephi in Humanities Research

 

In Person

This two-session course introduces attendees to some advanced uses of Gephi in humanities research, such as networks of information transmission, and visualisation and analysis of financial data. This is an intermediate course, basic knowledge of Gephi at the level covered in the Introduction to Network Analysis is assumed, although attendance at the previous course is not required. No coding will be used in class.

The first session introduces the visualisation of information transmission networks in Gephi. It focuses on topics such as:

  • Building information transmission networks using (historical) newspapers
  • Applying Gephi’s plugins (GeoLayout) to the network
  • Exporting the networks to Google Earth

The second session will focus on the visualisation and analysis of financial data in Gephi, covering topics such as:

  • Building dataset for (historical) financial and stock data in Microsoft Excel
  • Quantifying (historical) financial and stock data in Gephi

This is an intermediate level training and some previous knowledge of network analysis and Gephi would be required. If you are new to Gephi you can attend the Introduction to Network Analysis with Gephi course.

Those who have registered to take part will receive an email with full details and a link to join the session in advance of the start time.

 

This course will be taught by Brian Wong.

After taking part in this event, you may decide that you need some further help in applying what you have learnt to your research. If so, you can book a Data Surgery meeting with one of our training fellows.
