Dear Socnetters,

John Scott and I will discuss the topic of "Social Network Analysis and Multilevel Modelling" as part of this "When Methods Meet" event for the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science.


When Methods Meet: users of social science research methods in dialogue

Scottish Graduate School of Social Science

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Monday 28th November.

This event will explore and promote innovative pairings of research methods. It is built around three pairings involving a user of each method brought together with their counterpart, along with a discussant, with a view to exploring the potential for the methods to be used in combination. The format for the conversations will be: a short description on the key elements of each method by their proponents, an assessment of why the methods are not already routinely used in combination, and the potential benefits/challenges of combining them. The discussants will then identify questions around which to structure an inclusive debate. The day will start with a short introduction to set the scene, and conclude with more general discussions about the lessons that can be learned regarding how innovative pairings may be developed and promoted.

The three methods pairing talks are:

10.10 WMM conversation #1 and Q&A: Erin Jessee (University of Strathclyde) and Hayden Lorimer (University of Glasgow) ‘Oral history and animated archive’

11.30 WMM conversation #2 and Q&A: Ruth Bartlett (University of Southampton) and Sarah Rhynas (University of Edinburgh) ‘Diary methods and photovoice’

14.00 WMM conversation #3 and Q&A: John Scott (University of Exeter) and Mark Tranmer (University of Glasgow) ‘Social network analysis and multi-level modelling’

PLEASE NOTE: This event will be filmed.
