Chapter 13 Novel Approaches and Analytics

As we are coming to the final two weeks of this course, I hope we are all coming to appreciate the power of SNA and the relational perspective in general. It is totally fine if you are ‘still’ wrestling with certain areas of SNA, as every one of us brings unique background into this course and may either need extra time to grasp certain concepts/techniques or wish to engage more deeply with certain areas. As the instructor, I will be most happy if this course would serve as a starting point for your journey with SNA.

SNA and network analysis in general are constantly evolving. The potential to apply SNA is endless. This week, we will explore some “unusual” use of SNA and, in some cases, a combination of SNA with other techniques.
