Social Network Algorithmics

Arbeitsgespräch des Kulturwissenschaftlichen Kollegs


From their origins in sociology and anthropology, the construct of social networks and the methods of network analysis are now diffusing into many other disciplines in the social sciences, humanities, and beyond. Some associated concepts even made it into everyday (academic) culture.  Impact factors, h-indices, Google's PageRank, and the idea of six degrees of separation are some of the finest examples.

I will introduce the social network paradigm, highlight a few research examples, and briefly describe the contents of my Koselleck project, which aims at improving the link between theory and methods and is my main occupation while at the Seeburg.
