DYSTENA Conference

Hosted by DYSTENA with the support of CIVICA Research.

Recent years have seen a major shift in the way and pace that discourses and narratives are produced and diffused. As media has shifted towards digital platforms, where anyone can produce messages with wide visibility, researchers require new tools to analyze this communication and to understand its relationship to the development of norms and policies. 

We invite you to join us for a conference on the dynamics of social text and network analyses, including topics such as: 

  • The Dimensions of Social Networks 
  • Why and How Languages Matters 
  • Community Structure and Evolution

We are seeking submissions - such as research papers, novel data sets and innovative methods – to include in our programme, please use the registration link below.

Date and Time: September 29, 9am to 5pm CEST  

Location: Stockholm School of Economics (Stockholm, Sweden)

Program: Find the full program here

This conference is free of charge – meals will be provided, but we are not able to provide funding for travel or accommodation.
