Questioning the Disappearance of Disciplinary Boundaries
Wednesday, 23rd May 2018 in OC1.06, 10am – 5.30pm
This student-led Symposium will explore the various ways in which it has become trendy to develop interdisciplinary approaches that gradually obfuscate disciplinary boundaries. Research areas in the Arts and Social Sciences have increasingly become acquainted with the rearrangement of the disciplines within which they are studied. We aim to discuss ‘interdisciplinarity’ as a hypothesis whilst also considering benefits and possible issues it might raise.
Confirmed keynote speaker: Professor Catherine Davies, Professor of Hispanic and Latin American Studies at the University of Nottingham & Director of the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London.
