This internal workshop will explore recent advances at the intersection of gender studies and social network analysis (SNA) among a group of experts. It will be based on in-depth discussion of issues regarding the conceptualizing of power and status differentials through SNA, such as examining how measures of networks structure and evolution throw further light on central questions of social injustice in relation to gender.

Although there are many gender scholars and many researchers working in SNA, few overlaps exist. This workshop will provide a platform for researchers working on the interface between social network analysis and gender studies to discuss recent advances in the field in terms of data gathering and data analysis, as well as the conceptualization of gendered social network structures.

Limited seats are available. Please contact Jörg Müller jmuller@uoc.edu.
