Contributors to this collection address the ways in which interdisciplinarity is defined, positioned, and handled by researchers, universities, and critics, and examine such topics as "myths" of interdisciplinarity, postmodern critiques of interdisciplinarity, interdisciplinarity and research grant allocation, women's studies, Canadian studies, environmental studies, and "emerging" disciplines. The collection combines a theoretical examination of disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity as forms of knowledge production and organization with practical information about the basic difficulties and conundrums involved in the practice of interdisciplinary research.


Disciplines; interdisciplinarity; the experience of interdisciplinarity; the practice of interdisciplinarity; bridging two cultures; evaluating interdisciplinarity; changing the map; charting new territories.
