“A common challenge of humanities research is to address a complex web of loyalties, interests, influence, and the alignment of key actors around vital issues. What methods facilitate the research that aims to capture the structure of personal networks within complex systems, to track the evolving relationships among cultural agents and objects, and to visualize a matrix of ideas, relating individual concepts to the bigger picture? Kumu is powerful, open-source network analytics software that has a variety of applications for the humanities and beyond. In this workshop, participants will learn how to build a project from the ground up, compiling, structuring, and styling data to visualize a web of affiliations with an interactive network map. This workshop shows how Kumu may be leveraged in collaborative inquiry activities among scholars and students and explores some of the possibilities that network analytics offers to humanities scholarship and pedagogy. ”
