Interdisciplinarity (New Critical Idiom)by Joe Moran
Synopses & Reviews
Since Aristotle, similar areas of study have been segmented into increasingly disparate disciplines, creating the idea of "interdisciplinarity." In this ideal introduction to a hotly contested arena of literary theory, Joe Moran traces the history and use of the daunting term and the rise of interdisciplinary English, literary and cultural studies, and literature, science, space and nature. He also addresses how we use these constantly evolving disciplines to create new forms of knowledge.
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.
