Want to find hidden connections in your sources? Make a beautiful network graph to show your findings? Learn what questions to ask of a graph? Then come to the Center for Digital Humanities for a hands-on Introduction to Network Analysis. 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.

About the instructor: Jean Bauer is the Associate Director for the Center for Digital Humanities and lead developer of Project Quincy, an open source software package for tracing historical networks through time and space. She has taught network analysis workshops for several years, most recently at the NEH funded workshop on Digital Methods for Military History held at Northeastern University.
