Faculty Manhattans & Martinis


Part of the goal of the Digital and Computational Knowledge Initiative is to get faculty to enrich their knowledge of techniques and concepts so we can then share it with a wider audience. Over the last couple of years, we have been keen to push network analysis to the forefront. This fall a group of faculty and students–undergraduate and graduate–have met weekly as part of a proseminar on networks (QAC 239) and we’d like to show and tell a bit about network theory and analysis, especially now that our first course introducing students to networking—is heavily subscribed and ready to launch this January. (QAC 241)

So please come join us for a Manhattans & Martinis seasonal fête, featuring good drinks, satisfying snacks, and easygoing discussion. We’ll meet on Monday, December 15th at 4PM in Allbritton 311.

You’ll be able to hear your colleagues give glimpses of the power and grace of network analysis. We’ll learn from David Beveridge, Psyche Loui, Francis Starr, and Pavel Oleinikov about what network analysis is, what it’s good for, and how you and your students can learn a little more about it.

By December 15th, the term will be over, the grading marinading, and the bartender will be tending her bar, from 4PM.
