Interdisciplinarity

Synopsis

This volume examines the way in which we organize knowledge into disciplines, then reorganize it into new configurations when the existing disciplines have come to seem irrelevant or exclusory. Joe Moran traces the history and use of the term interdisciplinarity and tackles such vital topics as:* the rise of the disciplines* interdisciplinary English* Literary and Cultural Studies* 'theory' and the disciplines* texts and histories* literature, science, space and nature. Interdisciplinarity is the ideal entry point into one of today's most heated critical debates.
