Why is it called Node?
In recent months, whether in the events of the Arab Spring or Occupy Wall Street, we have seen social technologies empower people. They connect citizens to information. They connect citizens to each other. And, in some cases, they connect citizens to resources. Node is a Living Learning Community that involves Centenary students in the critical production of these technologies with a focus on social change.
Node is so named because it reflects and addresses a convergence on many levels:
students coming together from a variety of academic areas to work together toward a common project;
the confluence of virtual reality and physical reality through social media; and
the intersection and interaction of Centenary students with the larger Shreveport-Bossier community.
