Structures over Time. Relational Dynamics in European Societies and beyond

Networks in the Global World conference

The core subject areas of the NetGloW conference series remain the same in 2022, as well as the overall approach: The focus on advances in network analysis combining different types of methods and data to address the challenges in studying various kinds of networks, compared across cultures, societies, states, economies, and cities, – with a primary focus on European societies. Like before, a particular emphasis is on linkages between theory, method and applications, considering how theory-driven principles can be tested and which settings are suitable for such investigations. The conference will offer a coherent set of sessions and workshops corresponding to this overall approach. Simultaneously, once more NetGloW invites proposals from the community of network scholars on sessions and workshops they would like to bring to the conference, both in line with the proposed main topic and in addition to it.

The conference will be held on June 22–24, 2022 by the Centre for German and European Studies (St. Petersburg University - Bielefeld University). NetGloW is the largest regular conference on network analysis in Russia and Eastern Europe, supported by International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA), International Sociological Association (ISA), and German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The keynote speakers in 2022 will be Randall Collins, University of Pennsylvania, Betina Hollstein, University of Bremen, Daniel McFarland, Stanford University, and Ulrik Brandes, ETH Zürich.
