Disciplinary behaviour: Museum Studies project hosts symposium
Participants from a range of institutions, including Yale, the Tate, the Science Museum, the Royal Institution and various universities, will debate:
- Disciplinarity: Why do we have academic disciplines? From where did they come, and how have they evolved?
- Interdisciplinarity: How do we work best across and between disciplines? What do we gain and lose through interdisciplinarity? And...
- Post-disciplinarity: Are our academic disciplines still fit for purpose? Do we sometimes resist disciplinarity? How are disciplines viewed outside the academy?
Registration is free and the event includes refreshments and a buffet lunch. Delegates will also have the chance to view The Order of Things, a related, temporary exhibition by Museum Studies postgraduates.
