IAS Postgraduate Summer Reading Group

11th August 2009, 13:00, Seminar Room, Cosin's Hall, Palace Green

All postgraduate students are invited to attend to this reading group for discussing a key text on interdisciplinarity.

The reading would be the Introduction to Joe Moran's book Interdisciplinarity (2002), including 'The rise of the disciplines' and 'Defining Interdisciplinarity'.

This may be a starting point for taking your interest in interdisciplinarity further and voice your ideas for future seminars and workshops.

The text is accessible for students from all disciplines and the reading group will be a friendly environment for reflecting on the topic.

Copies of the text are available to collect from the IAS or by email. Please request email copies from Catherine Paine (
