Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), Spain

Extended submission deadline: May 15th, 2012

Markku Lonkila, Adjunct Professor at the Department of Social Research, University of Helsinki, Finland (http://blogs.helsinki.fi/lonkila/) :

"The Role of Personal Networks and Social Media in Mobilizing Russian Opposition Protests" 


Presentation: 

The Autonomous University of Barcelona organizes for the second year the International Seminar on Personal Networks, this time with the theme "Personal networks in times of economic hardship and political discontent". In light of the financial crisis, we wish to focus on the instrumental dimensions of personal networks for individuals and communities. More specifically, we wish to discuss to what extent individuals can mobilize economic resources via their personal networks, or social resources in response to economic needs. In addition, we wish to address the question how personal networks are used to mobilize collective action such as protest. Scholars working in these areas are warmly invited to present their research in the seminar. We are particularly interested in contributions that do not only demonstrate that resources or collective action are mobilized via personal networks, but that also pay attention to the underlying mechanisms, the conditions under which it occu
rs (or does not occur), or that control for alternative explanations such as different distributions of network resources among social groups. Both quantitative and qualitative contributions are welcome.

Some of the potential topics are:

-  The use of network contacts for getting hired or promoted in a job 

-  The use of informal network connections for sustaining small and medium enterprises

-  Effects of mixed embeddedness of ethnic entrepreneurs / ethnic enclaves

-  The role of personal networks in the decision to move abroad to improve job prospects

-  The role of personal networks in coping with poverty

-  Effects of the financial crisis on the social capital available through personal networks

-  Comparison of properties of personal networks of the employed and unemployed

-  The mobilization of citizens through personal networks for political protest

-  The role of social media in the spontaneous organization of civic demonstrations or protest

-  Institutional, organizational and/or network constraints on the mobilization of resources through personal networks

The seminar will take place in continuation of the summer course "The measurement of personal networks", which is also organized by the research group egolab-GRAFO (www.egolab.cat, see for the contents of the course http://grupsderecerca.uab.cat/egolab/content/summer-course ).
