Social Capital Dimensions and Levels

November 27, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0


This week Tristan Claridge will give a presentation on the dimensions of social capital and how they relate to different levels of analysis. The presentation will be based on his recent article.

Would you like to know more about different approaches to social capital and how they relate to different levels of analysis?

Tristan will discuss the popular distinction between structural, relational, and cognitive dimensions of social capital and how the factors relevant to each dimension are different at different levels; from individuals, to groups and organisations, to whole communities.

Tristan will present a typology that allows for different approaches to social capital to be understood within the context of other approaches. For example, when an author conceptualises social capital as relating to networks, we can understand what factors and dimensions are being included and which are being omitted.

This improves our understanding of different approaches and the key differences between them.

This event is part of our regular presentation and discussion session for researchers including PhD/master students.

This session is 7pm CET / 6pm UTC / 1pm EST / 12pm CST / 11am MST / 10am PST and will be facilitated by Jacob Spanke. A second session is held 12 hours earlier.

These sessions are a supportive way to connect with people. You can ask questions, get advice, discuss ideas or issues, get suggestions for literature to read, or you can just listen.

Do you want to present your research? Giving a short presentation to the group can be great practice for confirmation, thesis defense, or rehearsal for conference presentations. It can really help to formulate your ideas, get feedback on your research, and discuss your project.

Presentations can be helpful at various stages of your research program. In the early stages it can be helpful to get feedback from the group to help formulate your research, and later in your research to make sense of the data and practice presenting your final results.

Generally, presentations are 15 min (or shorter). The content of your presentation will depend on your research stage.
