Networks & The Liberal Arts

About this site

This site tracks developments in the field of network science that overlap with the goals of liberal education.   In the words of William Cronon (1998), “liberal education is about gaining the power and the wisdom, the generosity and the freedom to connect.”  Students learn to connect knowledge across disciplines with the concepts and techniques of network science.
