Welch, James, IV – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
The identification of conflict and development of common ground, important steps in the interdisciplinary research process, become challenging when applied to solving complex real-world problems that involve opposing interest groups, especially those whose members do not possess academic or interdisciplinary training. This article examines…

Wallace, Richard L.; Clark, Susan G. – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
Multiple barriers in the structure and function of American higher education conspire to impede the success of interdisciplinary programs in environmental studies.

Haar Farris, Matthew – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
Disciplines are by their very "origin and nature" unstable--always already differed and deferred from themselves--due to their genetic relation to what Jacques Derrida calls "différance". In a sense, "différance" is what makes disciplines possible in the first place, and it can be thought of as the economy or mode of…

Keestra, Machiel – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
Interdisciplinary understanding requires integration of insights from different perspectives, yet it appears questionable whether disciplinary experts are well prepared for this. Indeed, psychological and cognitive scientific studies suggest that expertise can be disadvantageous because experts are often more biased than non-experts, for example,…

Szostak, Rick – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
This article argues that cross-disciplinary linkages -- that is, relationships among phenomena studied by those in different disciplines -- often serve to destabilize, at least temporarily, systems of stability that are theorized to operate within the sets of phenomena studied within most disciplines. It surveys across disciplines both systems of…

Kisner, Wendell – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
Little research has been done on philosophical implications of the middle voice of early Greek and certain non-Western indigenous languages. In particular, the potential of such a medial ontology has yet to be even explored, much less realized, within the context of interdisciplinary studies. As a linguistic structure indicating an ambiguous…

Dieleman, Hans – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
This article explores the concept of transdisciplinarity as a cultural endeavor. It centers on the concept of transdisciplinary hermeneutics, as a form of contextualizing science in the framework of cultural ideas, subjective experiences of the researchers involved in the research process, and of imagination and the artful creation of possible new…

In order to address the growing need…

Condee, William – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2016
This article suggests that the arts and humanities are in the midst of an interdisciplinary turn. This turn is a reaction to two problems: the transformation of universities in the twenty-first century and the challenges posed by postmodernism. The interdisciplinary turn, as identified here, is toward critical thinking in teaching and learning and…

Arvidson, P. Sven – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2016
There are significant parallels between interdisciplinarity and phenomenology. Interdisciplinary conscious processes involve identifying relevant disciplines, evaluating each disciplinary insight, and creating common ground. In an analogous way, phenomenology involves conscious processes of epoché, reduction, and eidetic variation. Each stresses…
