FYI -- I will be teaching a workshop at the upcoming Sunbelt
conference designed for folks who are relatively new to social
network analysis entitled: "Introduction to Social Network Data
Collection with an Emphasis on Social Survey Methods".
Workshop description: This workshop is intended for relative
newcomers to social network analysis. This workshop will provide an
introduction to social network data collection with an emphasis on
social survey methods. The workshop will consider a variety of
related methodological issues such as measurement, sampling, data
analysis, and ethics, as well as the linkage of these issues to data
collection. Different types of data collection techniques will be
illustrated such as the name generator, position generator, and name
roster. The different opportunities and constraints associated with
data collection for whole versus ego-networks will be considered.
Some discussion of non-survey techniques may also be provided. Some
attention may also be given to mixed methods.
Please pass this info on to students and faculty who are new to SNA,
who might be interested in an introductory workshop focused on data
