Subject: Social networks and language biographies

Dear list members,

I am a student of linguistics and need some help:
-Are there any books or articles discussing L. Milroy's concept/theory of
social networks?
-I work on Slovak linguistic community in Croatia and would like to employ
the concept of social networks making use of language (auto)biographical
narratives (e.g. Nekvapil, 2001 & in prep.). Does anyone of you work on
something similar or can you suggest some literature?
