This conference sets out to consider the emergence of interdisciplinary research within the Arts and Humanities during the last 40 years. Emerging out of the political, social and cultural ambitions of a changing western world from the 1960s onwards, interdisciplinarity within the academy became a means of developing a new and complex understanding of what it means to situate oneself: to act, teach, and undertake research in a world that no longer broke down according to existing disciplinary boundaries.
In addressing and interrogating the genealogy of the interdisciplinary journal, this conference is the first to bring together the relationship between journal publishing, policy-making and research itself.
There will be no conference fee for attendees, but please RSVP to Sharon Sinclair, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference will be held at the Swedenborg Society, Bloomsbury, London.
