Consider submitting your relevant work to the ‘Semantic and Socio-Semantic Networks’ session of the conference ‘Networks in the Global World’ (St. Petersburg, July 7-9, 2020) by January 13, 2020.
Session chair: Iina Hellsten, University of Amsterdam.
Session invited speaker: Camille Roth, Humboldt University Berlin.
This session is dedicated to research applying network analysis techniques
to texts. We are also interested in work combining text networks with social
network data - in order to expand our understanding of the meaning both of texts
and of social relations.
Interested participants are invited to submit theoretical, methodological
or empirical papers, contributing new perspectives on the questions how, when,
and under what conditions social relationships, content and meaning structures
can be connected via network research; or what approaches are suitable to
strengthen the understanding of the connections between the structure of social
relations and meaning.
We invite papers on, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Theorizing about meaning structure, semantic structure and social structure, and the relations between them;
- Qualitative and quantitative methods to study semantic structure, including in relation to social structure;
- Multilevel and multimode semantic and socio-semantic networks;
- Semantic similarity and its relation with social ties;
- Joint semantic network analysis of message content and social network analysis of information channels;
- Applying social network analysis techniques to semantic and socio-semantic networks;
- Usage of semantic network data to capture social structures between actors;
- Semantic structuring throughout conversations in networks.
Finally, we invite applications of semantic and socio-semantic network analyses in various fields.
