dc.description.abstractThis reflection on the state of the field of interdiscipinary studies presents a conceptual framework for thinking about the institutionalization of interdisciplinarity, accounts for developments that have expanded its nature and modes of implementation, addresses the role of professionalization, and weighs the balance of universality and local political economy.  The underlying argument is that interdisciplinary studies is a constellation of fieds, not a single sphere of interest. Static models and universal theories disguise the complex plurality, diversity, and dynamism of research and education today. Traditional models still exist, but new strategies are also advancing prospects for inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches across the heterogeneous landscape of the academy.
