Joint DUPRI and DNAC Event
The Duke Population Research Center (DPRC)/DUPRI and the Duke Network Analysis Center (DNAC) are looking for ways to bring together faculty interested in models of network influence, empirical studies testing these models and the use of network models for sampling populations. There are currently multiple network projects ongoing around the globe that are led by Duke researchers. If combined, this work would allow for unprecedented research on network-embedded social action. The returns to research would be new insights into how social networks shape health, development and strategic behavior around the globe. We are bringing together a group of faculty from Duke economics, political science, public policy, and sociology to meet and discuss their research featuring models of network influence and network data collection with the goal to identify mechanisms in which this work could benefit from common analysis tools, data infrastructure, and theory and spur collaborations.
