Association for Integrative Studies

Interdisciplinary Studies Program
College of Lifelong Learning, Wayne State University

The Hotel St. Regis, Detroit, Michigan

Forms and Structure for Interdisciplinary Dialogue

What forums and structures exist for interdisciplinary dialogue? Which
are successful? Which fail? Why? How do academic structures
(curricular, research, pedagogical, administrative, etc.) encourage or
discourage interdisciplinary dialogue?

We invite your responses to this theme and its variations, including,
for example:
-Interdisciplinary Centers and Institutes
-Graduate Interdisciplinary Studies/Programs
-The Rhetoric of Interdisciplinarity
-Technology and Interdisciplinarity
-Involving Studies in Interdisciplinary Dialogue
-The Internationalization of Interdisciplinarity
-Interdisciplinary Imperatives/Interdisciplinary Initiatives

Although formal paper presentations are invited, the conference
organizers welcome creative formats that encourage audience
participation (round tables, poster sessions, panel presentations, etc.)
and extend a special invitation to students to attend and submit
proposals. Please include name(s), titles(s), address(es), and
telephone and FAX number(s) as well as the title and a one-page summary
of the proposed paper, session, or panel, indicating presentation length
and anticipated audio-visual needs.

Proposals must be postmarked or faxed by April 9, 1993 to:
