Theories in Interdisciplinarity

In this course, we will consider both theories about interdisciplinarity and interdisciplinary theories. Without denying the importance of unidisciplinary research, this course will underscore the importance, but also the difficulty, of theoretical work that gathers together conceptual categories from diverse disciplines. Attention will be paid to its importance inasmuch as such interdisciplinary theorization may adequately account for the object of study; its difficulty, on the other hand, will be shown to be not only epistemological and analytical, but also politico-scientific. cr 3
