INCITE Hosts Networks Short Course


Taught by Mattias Smångs, assistant professor of sociology at Fordham University, the two-day (November 9th and 16th) networks short course introduced eighteen researchers from Columbia University and other nearby universities/organizations to some of the fundamental ideas, concepts, measures, and methods of social network analysis. Participants learned how to use the social network analysis software UCINET to perform basic analyses. Smångs also presented on his own research, “Delinquency, Social Skills and the Structure of Peer Relations: Assessing Criminological Theories by Social Network Theory.” INCITE would like to thank Smångs and all of the participants for making it such a lively class!
