Call for Proposals Extended

46th Annual Conference of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies

Conference Theme:Interdisciplinary Bridge Building: Reconnection and Traversal

September 27 & 28, 2024, Virtual

Interdisciplinarity can be imagined as a space or environment, constructed or organic, that sometimes arises out of interdisciplinary responses to forms of polarization, fragmentation, specialization, and the divides between practices, theories and scientific cultures.

This year’s virtual conference seeks proposals that explore the structures, theories, and practices of (re)connection, e.g., the bridge, traverse, rhizome, etc., that result in active knowledge creation, new pedagogies, and the re-imagining of the communities they connect. As a virtual conference, we welcome traditional formats such as the short paper, roundtable, and panel, as well as proposals for sessions that may model the activities they present, such as unsessions*, and interactive workshops, as well as presentations designed to encourage participants’ active engagement.

*Unsessions: You are welcome to “un-session” a topic you’d like to learn more about or discuss; if you want to workshop an idea or have a question you’d like to discuss, or if you want to explore something new, propose an “un-session” where participants build knowledge and ideas together, and the session leader does not have to be an expert in the field but  instead guides the session in discussion and knowledge-building.

Submission deadline extended: June 24, 2024
