Join us on October 24, 2022 for the Critical Digital Humanities Initiative’s (CDHI’s) first praxis workshop of the 2022-2023 academic year on “Visualizing Relationships: A Friendly Introduction to Working with Networks using Gephi.”
A network is a way of specifying relationships among a collection of entities or actors. Networks come up in a variety of situations; for example, they can describe relationships between characters in literary works, how authors cite each other in a particular discipline or how people interact on social media.
Through a combination of lecture and hands-on activities, this 2.5-hour workshop will introduce you to network visualization using a free, open-source tool called Gephi. For our examples, we will be starting with smaller networks, looking at relationships between characters in the play Romeo and Juliet, and movie actors that work together on the same films.
This workshop is designed for those new to networks and Gephi. There are no prerequisites or assumptions of knowledge of math, statistics, or programming.
This workshop will be facilitated by Kelly Schultz, a Data Visualization Librarian at the Map & Data Library at the University of Toronto. See the Code of Conduct for workshops conducted by Map & Data librarians.
This workshop will be a virtual event. Pre-registration is required and available at this link.
