IIS 060 PZ -Interdisciplinary Knowledge & Global Justice


Institution: Pitzer

Description: Designed as an introduction to theoretical debates central to interdisciplinary critiques of objectivist epistemology and methodologies, the course provides students with interdisciplinary methods for research and other knowledge practices. Students will be exposed to a range of alternative ways that interdisciplinary fields frame questions, conduct research and engage in action by challenging the political and ethical terms of the academy, muddying the fiction of the theory/practice divide, exploring the kinds of theoretical, ideological, and material praxis that constitute interdisciplinary inquiry. Ethics, politics, epistemologies, authority, evidence, protocols, priorities, and feasibility will be discussed as students design a research project in interdisciplinary knowledge production to be used in External Studies independent study projects and/or in senior projects.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
