Davidson, Cathy N.; Janz, Bruce B. – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2019
In this article, we seek to apply Julie Thompson Klein's supple understanding of typology as both category-making and category-defying to one aspect of her own body of work: her participation in a range of organizations with permeable boundaries. Specifically, we review her contributions to theories of boundary work in interdisciplinary studies…

Holley, Karri A. – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2019
In this article, I consider Klein's scholarship as a foundation to examine the realities of interdisciplinary practice in higher education institutions, including questions of who engages in interdisciplinary work, how interdisciplinary work is supported, and how interdisciplinary work is organized. In discussing each of these issues, I underscore…

Keestra, Machiel – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2019
When introduced around 1925, interdisciplinarity, grounded in the notion of the unity of knowledge, was meant to reconnect the fragmented and specialized disciplines of academia.

One of the great challenges interdisciplinary programs face is fguring out how to get students to engage subject matter in a truly integrative way. To accomplish integration, students do not need to become experts in multiple felds, but they do need to understand how multiple modes of thinking, theoretical lenses, and content knowledge can be…
