Networks and Time

This workshop explores the areas of social networks, historical sociology, and the modeling of time in sociology. It is intended as a venue for faculty and graduate students, both from Columbia and beyond, to present work in progress. It should provide a space for the discussion of innovative quantitative methods, as well as original theoretical insights on a range of topics including networks and network dynamics, the sociological analysis of events, narratives and careers, and more specific issues in historical sociology. The workshop is co-sponsored by the Department of Sociology.
