funded Spring 2015
Network science allows researchers and artists to identify relationships and present results in ways that allow new discoveries. As part of this research, the team hosted a workshop to bring in leading scholars to both show the possibilities of network science in research presentations, and then teach workshops. Invited speakers representing interdisciplinary connections between the Languages, Arts, Sciences, and Humanities first shared their network-science based research, and then taught hands-on classes so that attendees could learn how to use NS tools and techniques in order to address questions in their own disciplines. The former allowed participants to expand their research partnerships and collaborations, while the latter provided individuals with the tools and methodologies to collaborate.
