Networks: A Skills Workshop

Network analysis offers an interesting way of exploring and visualising networks between social, economic and political actors.

Networks: A Skills Workshop

This workshop will be led by Dr Kate Davison (University of Sheffield, History Dept.), assisted by Prof Mark Philp, Steve Ranford, and his colleagues Godwin Yeboah and James Tripp (of the newly formed Information and Digital Group Technology for Research; they are also part of the Centre for Digital Inquiry).

The concept and utility of social network analysis will be explored, and some of the software illustrated. The session will be hybrid. You are encouraged to prepare for the session by reading the Kadushin listed in below webpage, but this is not essential if you do not have the time beforehand. Although this is an event organised by the History department's Early Modern and Eighteenth Century Centre, it is open more widely to others in History and more widely. Please read more (and register if interested or share) using the following webpage.


Introductory Social Media data collection and Analysis using R

How can you collect and examine social media data? In this workshop, we will use the R statistical programming language to download and begin to examine social media data from Twitter and Reddit. We look closely at the data and then zoom out to consider overall trends. The aim of this workshop is to introduce the collection and analysis of social media data. The materials for this workshop are available on GitHub here.

The workshop is available for Warwick staff and students, who can sign up here. If you have any queries then please contact james.tripp@warwick.ac.uk

How to create a map for print and web using QGIS

Do you want to learn a new skill in Term 2? Have you ever thought of creating a basic map for a presentation or publication? What about creating an interactive web map for your own website or just to experiment how that will look in an internet browser? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and you are in Warwick, this workshop is for you!

In this introductory course, we will give you an overview on how to use different cartographic techniques to effectively present outcomes of digital data exploration using QGIS software. We assume no prior knowledge of GIS (Geographic Information System) and will explain how to get data into the GIS as well as how to produce maps using data. The workshop lead is Dr Godwin Yeboah (g.yeboah at warwick.ac.uk).
