Students who have completed the seminar will be able to critically

conduct social and semantic network analysis, and
reflect on the results.

Inhoud vak

The seminar Networked Organizations and Communication aims at gaining
in-depth insight into networked organizations and network analysis. The
seminar begins with an introduction to network theory, general terms,
and concepts. On
the basis of recent network literature, the seminar then focuses on how
organizations and organizational members become (dis)connected to (from)
other. A particular focus will be on gaining insights into social and
semantic networks and on the software program with which one can analyze
and visualize such networks. This course addresses three
aspects of organizational networks: structure, content and meaning.


Interactive lectures combined with workshops about network analysis
methods. Active participation in the lectures and method workshops is


Group assignment (research project), individually written assignment.


Series of articles to be announced on Canvas.
