After this half day bootcamp you will know how to create network graphs for your own research, whether you are creating your network data by hand or cleaning a preexisting data set. Most importantly, you will have learned how to identify which of your research questions are best answered with this powerful methodology.   This workshop will also introduce you to two powerful software packages: Gephi (network analysis) and OpenRefine (data cleaning). No prior experience is required.  Participants are asked to bring a laptop with Gephi and OpenRefine installed (instructions for downloading the free software can be found at and If you have problems installing either, come anyway and CDH staff will help you get setup.
