Using Palladio for Social Network Visualization [Online]


Network gets to the heart of our fascination with the complex "connectedness" of modern society.  By definition, a network is a pattern of interconnections among a set of things. In a social network setting, you can think of it as a diagram that illustrates interconnections among people, groups, and organizatins. Palladio, developed by Stanford’s Humanities + Design Lab, is a web-based visualization tool for complex humanities data.  A super easy-to-use tool, it can be particularly good for beginners to network analysis.  This workshop will contextualize the exploration of Palladio within an intellectual inquiry–what drove the inquiry and what emerged from the data as a result of deep engagement of the visualization.  Specifically, the workshop will cover: 
  1. Network basic concepts 
  2. Introduction to Palladio 
  3. Example: using the Chinese Headtax data to visualize historical migration patterns 
  4. The caveats behind Palladio's ease of use
