CERES Palais, room "Ruhrpott" (4.13)
Workshop by Marcus Bingenheimer (Philadelphia)
This workshop will introduce participants in the use of a popular, open-source network analysis software. After an overview of Gephi functions, we will use the tool with a particular dataset, the "Historical Social Network of Chinese Buddhism" (https://github.com/mbingenheimer/ChineseBuddhism_SNA) that contains some 18,000 actors and 26,000 connections.
After the workshop, participants will be able to identify persons in the network, understand how to trace connections back to primary sources, visualise ego-networks, and enrich the dataset with their own data.
If you are interested in participating in the workshop, please contact Ben Müller.
