Network analysis for news

A session at CAR 2012

  • Peter Aldhous

Thursday 23rd February, 2012

2:00pm to 2:50pm (CST)

What is network analysis (aka social network analysis)? How can I use it in my reporting? We'll cover the basic concepts involved in analyzing the connections between people and organizations, and provide examples of how network analysis can be used – from documenting cronyism in the selection of a Grand Jury, to visualizing differences in the Twitter conversations surrounding the Occupy and Tea Party movements.
