Part of the The New Critical Idiom series
Interdisciplinarity covers one of the most important changes in attitude and methodology in the history of the university. Taking the study of English as its main example, this fully updated second edition examines the ways in which we have organized knowledge into disciplines, and are now reorganizing it into new configurations as existing structures come to seem restrictive.
Joe Moran traces the history and use of the term `interdisciplinarity', tackling such vital topics as:the rise of the disciplinesinterdisciplinary EnglishLiterary and Cultural Studies'theory' and the disciplinestexts and historiesliterature and science, space and nature. Including an updated further reading section and new concluding chapter, Interdisciplinarity is the ideal entry point into one of today's most heated critical debates.
