Issues in Interdisciplinarity 2019-20
Hello and welcome to the Wikibook Issues in Interdisciplinarity 2019-20.
This book is collaboratively written by students at University College London (UCL) taking the module 'Approaches to Knowledge', a first-year undergraduate course that forms part of the core of the Arts and Sciences degree programme.
The book is split into four sections, covering four common issues facing those conducting interdisciplinary work:
Each chapter explores how one of these issues might play out in an actual example of interdisciplinary work.
Potential readers may range from stakeholders in interdisciplinary education (e.g. educators or policy-makers) to students thinking of pursuing an interdisciplinary degree programme, either at UCL or elsewhere.
This book is a sequel to the Wikibook Issues in Interdisciplinarity 2018-19.
Any interested parties can contact the module convenors, James Everest and Lauren Bird, for further information. Contact details are available on the UCL Arts and Sciences departmental webpage.
