Current Definitions of Social Capital 2020

December 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0


This week Tristan Claridge will give a presentation on the definitions of social capital: “Social capital definitional inexactitude, multiplicity, and confusion” followed by a discussion about definitional and conceptual issues.

In this presentation, Tristan will explore whether an accepted definition of social capital is emerging in the literature? Using the results of a review of 250 peer-reviewed journal article, Tristan will outline the current state of social capital research – what definitions, approaches, conceptualisations, methodologies, etc are currently being used.

Has the bonding/bridging distinction become a standard? What about structural/relational/cognitive dimensions? Should you be using these? How often are qualitative methodologies used? What about mixed methods or quantitative?

This is a repeat of the presentation given to the earlier group a few weeks ago.

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.
