Seminario “Análisis de Redes Sociales: una introducción para las ciencias sociales y un estudio de caso”

Seminario «Social networks analysis: an introduction for social sciences and a case study», a cargo de Jaromir Kovarik (Universidad del País Vasco), en el marco de los Seminarios “Antropología, cultura y comportamiento”,

Resumen (la charla será en español en la medida de los posible): There has been an explosion of interest in network research across the social sciences, yielding explanations for a large variety of social phenomena in psychology, sociology, economics or anthropology. We first review the basic concepts of network theory that social scientists employ to explain and predict social phenomena that take place in networked contexts. Second, we present one particular application of these concepts in a real-life phenomenon.

Jaromir Kovarik is an Associate Professor in the Economics Department I of the University of the Basque Country and he is an Affiliate of Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education – Economic Institute in Prague, Czech Republic. He holds a Ph.D. from the Economics Department of the University of Alicante. He is a social scientist. His main research interests are social norms, social preferences, and social networks, and their dynamics. His research is both theoretical and empirical, employing experiments, real-life data, theoretical models, and occasionally computer simulations. The topics of his research lie on the border of various behavioral disciplines such as economics, psychology, biology, and sociology. This determines the methodologies he employs: (behavioral and evolutionary) game theory, agent-based modeling, and experimental economics. Currently, he extensively works on social networks, the effect of external shocks on social organization, and several projects associating human behavior to biological characteristics.
