The scientific description and monitoring of increasingly complex crises and challenges require interdisciplinary research approaches and strategies as well as modes of thinking and acting that go beyond the rigid boundaries of the academic system. Such endeavors are thus being more and more promoted and demanded. Due to this reason the TUD Dresden University of Technology launched the measure “Disruption and societal change” (TUDiSC), where researchers from many different disciplines undertake a joint effort to investigate disruptions from a conceptual and practical perspective. TUDiSC was and is an ambitious project, that requires establishing common ground, integrating expertise and constructively overcoming differences. This process is in itself pushing the boundaries of strict disciplinary research and emanates in the best case a positively disruptive energy. For the 5th TUDiSC conference we would like to explore those scientific boundaries. We will be looking at conditions for successful interdisciplinarity, exploring the intersection between research, art and activism; and examine the interface between science and society.

Please see the call for abstracts for more details and information relating to submission. The deadline is May 13th, 2024.
