HUM 583

Interdisciplinarity and Antidisciplinarity

D. Graham Burnett

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

Academic life is largely configured along disciplinary lines. What are “disciplines,” and what does it mean to think, write, teach, and work within these socio-cognitive structures? Are there alternatives? This course, drawing on faculty associated with the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities (IHUM), takes up these questions, in an effort to clarify the historical evolution and current configuration of intellectual activity within universities. Normative questions detain us. The future is a persistent preoccupation.
