The Structure of Social Capital
January 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0Free
This week Joseph Cabrera will give a presentation: “The Structure of Social Capital”.
In this talk Joseph will discuss current research in which he attempts to identify common network structures which are present in all (or most) groups with high levels of social capital. Joseph will examine social networks in a residential hall setting as well as on-campus social connections. Joseph will also explore the ability (or lack thereof) of students to mobilize important resources within their social networks.
Joseph Cabrera is Associate Professor of Sociology and Chair, Sociology/Criminology Program at the University of La Verne.
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.
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.
