CFP: What is Interdisciplinary Success?
Submission deadline: Sunday, July 29 2012
Thursday, October 4 2012 - Friday, October 5 2012
The Department of Philosophy hosts a two day workshop on “Interdisciplinary Success.” To contribute, please send a max 500 word abstract, prepared for blind review, no later than July 29 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Travel cost are covered/subsidized; accommodation is provided.
Your abstract should address the question: “What is interdisciplinary success?” This need not entail providing an answer. Possibly, you might suggest why the question is mistaken and suggest a more appropriate question. Or you might cite necessary (though perhaps non-sufficient) conditions of such success, or provide examples of what such success is not or cannot be (i.e., present failure cases of such projects). You might also critically discuss the kinds of success-measures used to evaluate disciplinary projects, if any, and whether these can be transferred to interdisciplinary projects, or not, etc. Contributions related to the natural or the human sciences are equally welcome.
