Hi Batul!

Your question on "networks and relational sociology" is a little 
imprecise, mainly because "relational sociology" has recently come to 
mean a number of things. Emirbayer's Manifesto certainly accorded a 
prominent role for network research (SNA, but also Network Theorizing by 
White and others), but it also subsumed a number of theorists without 
much interests in networks under the label: Marx, Foucault, Luhmann, 
Bourdieu. Also, the label had already been in use for a while before 
that, most importantly by P. Donati in Italy, who also does not really 
cover networks. In recent years, the two edited volumes "Conceptualizing 
Relational Sociology" and "Applying Relational Sociology", as well as 
the just published "Palgrave Handbook of Relational Sociology" 
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__link.springer.com_book_10.1007_978-2D3-2D319-2D66005-2D9&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=qALHB7TOTzwxkJ-KkxAchf0Gl1bgo4TgtcCFav-pEYQ&s=bmqvtA4GORjnPjB5d-0EWZ9tSW7Y8jYdv7K037UEQ5o&e=; all of them 
with Palgrave, edited by Francois Depelteau and Christopher Powell) 
cover a widespread discussion of relational sociology. Much of it 
focuses on social theory, even leaning into philosophy, without a strong 
connection to networks.

If you are interested in the authors and works linking the discussion of 
"relational sociology" with network research, you should definitely look 
at Nick Crossley's book, as Elisa suggested. Apart from that, the 
following overviews have been published over the recent years:

(yours truly)

But there is also abundant work fitting our criteria for relational 
sociology without necessarily using the label. See for overviews:

(Pachucki / Breiger)
www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/03085140500465899 (Knox et al.)

Hope this helps in any way. Best from Berlin,
Jan
