Volkswagen Stiftung – Interdisciplinarity Revisited

Volkswagen Stiftung -  Interdisciplinarity Revisited

Different concepts of interdisciplinarity and the potential of interdisciplinary research for higher education will be discussed by international experts on 3-4 October 2019, in Berlin. GYA member and Co-Chair Connie Nshemereirwe will speak in a round table discussion on “Interdisciplinarity in Academic Learning – Who Benefits?”

Interdisciplinarity seems to have become a buzzword in research and university life. It is used to characterize research designs, projects, subjects, degrees, and even the researcher, the institute or the university itself. But quite often the term remains unquestioned. Despite a wide range of research on this topic during the last 15 years there are still many blind spots and open questions in the realm of interdisciplinary collaboration and cooperation. Taking a closer look at different concepts and definitions of interdisciplinarity and their application in every day university practice  is the aim of a symposium jointly organized by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the foundation Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss and the Volkswagen Foundation.

This symposium is the first academic meeting which will be held in the newly built Humboldt Forum in the very heart of Berlin.
