Сетевой анализ биографических интервью: возможности и ограничения
This paper deals with certain principles and examples of conducting network analysis of biographical interviews as a mixed-methods design. It reveals the general idea and special features of the network approach to studying the structure of an academic community based on a corpus of their biographical interviews. The paper focuses on the previous experience of similar research designs, summarizing the opportunities and limitations of such design. The analysis is based on the ongoing project aimed at re-constructing the interaction networks among the key figures of soviet and Russian sociology with the help of network analysis. It is based on the materials of biographical interviews (n=157) collected by B. Doktorov and implemented in the BORIS software.
