Interdisciplinarity: The New Discipline?

School of Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Glasgow, Crichton
Campus, Dumfries, DG1 4ZL
Tuesday 3rd September - Thursday 5th September 2019

Conference Description

The School of Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Glasgow, will
mark 20 years of the University of Glasgow's presence at its Dumfries
campus with a conference examining interdisciplinarity, its evolving
interpretations, histories and uses. Amongst the key themes the
conference will consider is the normalisation of interdisciplinarity
methods, perspectives and discourses within research and educational
contexts. Participants will address the drivers, challenges and
opportunities of integrating approaches from different disciplines
offered by funding bodies, academic journals and REF panels.
Practitioners from teaching and learning are invited to address the
processes by which the difficulties and benefits of teaching mixed
disciplinary groups, with their own distinctive discourses and regimes
of truth, have been negotiated, embraced and/or abandoned.

As well as keynote and plenary sessions, the conference will also have
break-out sessions based on examining interdisciplinarity within
discipline-specific, specialist and/or niche research and teaching
groups. Each of these will feed back via a convenor at a roundtable
event during the conference to explore questions to explore what changes
have occurred and to what extent has the discourse of
interdisciplinarity provided not new approaches to intellectual
discovery but a cover for the continuation of existing disciplinary methods.

The types of key points we hope the participants on the specialist
sessions will address and the co-ordinator will feedback on are:

*         What do you mean by 'interdisciplinarity', how far does it
differ or concur with interpretations within your discipline/subject
area and how is it manifested?
*         What do different parties view as the strengths and weaknesses
of interdisciplinarity as it is practised in your research or in
relation to pedagogical approaches and teaching methods?    *         To
what extent is interdisciplinarity occurring and how do the demands of
attracting funding, achieving publication, meeting REF, managerial and
institutional demands shape the forms of interdisciplinarity?
*         How are external pressures shaping interdisciplinarity
resisted or transcended?
*         What other factors shape the promotion, marginalisation,
configuring and normalisation of interdisciplinarity? *         How, if
at all, has 'interdisciplinarity' changed your discipline/subject area
in general and your practice in particular?
*         What might others from outside your discipline/subject area
learn from your experience of interdisciplinarity?

presentation or poster by Thursday 4th April 2019 to either:

and we are delighted to welcome Dr Safiya Umoja Noble
Associate Professor at UCLA and a visiting faculty member to the
University of Southern California's Annenberg School of Communication.

Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism

In this exciting talk, Dr. Noble will discuss the impact of
marginalisation and misrepresentation in commercial information
platforms, as well as the implications for public information needs.

After the talk there will be a poster exhibition with lightning talks
to showcase the digital research currently underway at The National

        Subject: CFP: MLA 2020 -- Brecht as Data Set

Call for Papers

Convention of the Modern Language Association
Seattle, WA (9-12 January January 2020).

Brecht as Data Set

The International Brecht Society invites papers and comments on how
digital humanities methodologies open up new approaches to Brecht's
writings and their "use-value" today, providing an opportunity to
explore the challenges and limits of algorithms when they meet literary
hermeneutics. The digital turn has had an impact on the teaching and
practice of literary scholarship. Yet, while digital humanities
methodologies have been lauded for at least two decades in literary
studies, many students and colleagues are perplexed as to what such
approaches entail. Skeptical observers tend to see literature and the
digital world as fundamentally incompatible, yet nearly everyone
recognizes that scholarly communication will soon be largely organized
in digital venues. The digital migration of the world's library archives
is well underway. Both critics and promoters of digital humanities see
it as a kind of replacement for traditional humanities scholarship, but
the work of the literary critic has not changed with the advent of new
technological hardware and software.

For reference, digital repositories of Brecht material include:

  1. Six-volume Chadwyck-Healey Jubiläumsausgabe of Brecht's works:

  2. The Bertolt-Brecht-Archiv at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin:
  3. Akademie der Künste ongoing digitization of Brecht's film-related
  4. Akademie der Künste's soon-to-be-accessible digitization of Brecht's
  5. Suhrkamp's ongoing publication of Brecht's notebooks:

We seek proposals that help bring Brecht in the digital age. What do we
gain and lose in this transition?  250-word abstracts to Marc Silberman
(mdsilber@wisc.edu) and Evan Torner (evan.torner@uc.edu) by March 18, 2019.
