NetLab Centre for Urban and Community Studies University of Toronto
NetLab is a scholarly network studying computer networks, communication networks, and social networks. Netlab scholars are linked to the Centre for Urban and Community Studies, the Department of Sociology, the Knowledge Media Design Institute, and the Faculty of Information Studies. Our overarching interest is in how the Internet affects everyday life: at work, in the community, and among family members. This research network, headed by Barry Wellman, hosts a motley crew of social science professors, graduate students and undergraduates.
