Synergy in Scholarship: A Blend of Science and Humanities

March 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


About the Event:

University structures are often designed to offer degree specialization, however siloing knowledge and ways of knowing can hinder the cross-pollination of ideas and innovations. Entities like the University’s Institute for Advanced Study, Liberal Arts Engagement Hub, and the Institute on the Environment create intentional platforms for interdisciplinary work.

Within these spaces and others like them, scholars, researchers, artists, community members, students, and others can converge, bringing varied perspectives and methodologies to the multifaceted challenges facing our planet and people. Accessible grant funding, interdisciplinary teaching, and community-driven projects help spark both relationships and collaborative work.

Join Dr. Amelious N. Whyte, Jr., Interim Director, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, College of Liberal Arts, UMN; Christine Baeumler, Professor and Chair, Department of Art, UMN, and IonE Fellow; and Laurie Moberg, Editor of Open Rivers, Institute for Advanced Study, and IonE Associate, for a discussion with Julie Hanus, IonE’s Director of Strategic & Public Interest Communications, as they explore the opportunities of interdisciplinary work, best practices and lessons learned, how teaching approaches have expanded to include this interdisciplinary mindset, and more.
