This proseminar, co-led by ISS Fellows Chris Smith and Robert Faris, will provide a broad overview of social network analysis, beginning with basic network visualization and customization and concluding with advanced modeling and the visualization of complex data.
This Proseminar, co-led by four ISS Fellows, explored the interdisciplinary use of experimental economic games (EEG) and their role in enhancing our understanding of the decision-making process.
Led by ISS Fellow Cristiana Giordano, an assistant professor of anthropology, this Proseminar covered ethnography, fieldwork and the kinds of texts and representations social scientists produce post-fieldwork to disseminate and interpret the results of their research. Through workshops, presentations, and guest lectures, students explored different ethnographic methods, as well as various texts and forms of representation based on ethnographic material.
