Social and Info Networks

In the past decade, online information networks have fundamentally transformed the ways that people obtain news and current events, communicate with one another, seek advice, shop, travel, and are entertained. Cornell has interdisciplinary research projects on social and information networks that bring together faculty and students from many areas, including sociology, economics, communication, computer science, physics, and applied mathematics.

Recognizing the importance of this work, the Institute for the Social Sciences has chosen social and information networks as its Theme Project for 2005-2008.

This research is supported by the National Science Foundation, grants 0403340, 0537606, and 0432917, the Internet Archive, and Cornell's Institute for the Social Sciences.
