Getting Started with Networks

This workshop will provide a broad overview of network analysis. We'll cover what networks are, how you can interpret and create them, and why you might want to use them in your research. 

After discussing what networks are and how to read them, instructors will open two breakout rooms: one will demonstrate how to generate networks using Gephi (off-the-shelf software, no programming required) and the other will walk through using NetworkX (a Python library for creating networks). Participants will have the option to choose which breakout room they will join.

This workshop is designed for participants who are new to network analysis concepts and tools.


Participants who plan to use Gephi should install the software prior to the workshop. If you have trouble with the installation, stop by the Digital Humanities Lab’s virtual Office Hours for help.

Participants who plan to use NetworkX should have taken the "First Steps with Python" workshop or should otherwise have a general understanding of Python’s syntax and data types. If you missed or want to review what was covered in "First Steps with Python," you can find the tutorial on the DHLab’s GitHub repository.

Instructors: Catherine DeRose (DHLab) and Doug Duhaime (DHLab)
