Call for papers - Dossier: Social Network Analysis (SNA) in Brazilian social sciences: theory, method and empirical applications (Mediações, vol. 27, n. 2 - 2022/2).


Editors: Camila Caldeira Nunes Dias (UFABC) e Vinicius Assis Couto (Escritório das Nações Unidas sobre Drogas e Crime-UNODC).

The Social Sciences have theoretical and methodological dilemmas that built a fruitful debate. Issues such as structure/action and micro/macro are examples of challenges that are difficult to overcome. Among a range of elaborations which seek to answer these dilemmas, the theoretical/methodological conception of Social Network Analysis (SNA) presents itself as one of the aspects with the grand capacity to generate new debates on overcoming dichotomies. At the same time, SNA builds new paths of understanding social reality and its relational dynamics. In this sense, the proposal of this dossier will receive scientific papers that can contribute to reflection involving the SNA. This dossier looks for interdisciplinary articles which contribute to the field of social sciences as well as presenting some possibilities of empirical application in different problems, challenges and objects of study.

Call for papers will be open until March 15, 2022.

Contributions should be submitted through the journal's online system:
