Description: Taking stock of interdisciplinarity as it nears its century mark, the Oxford Handbook of Interdisciplinarity constitutes a major new reference work on the topic of interdisciplinarity, a concept of growing academic and societal importance.
Synopsis: Interdisciplinarity is fast becoming as important outside academia as within. Academics, policy makers, and the general public seek methods and approaches to help organize and integrate the vast amounts of knowledge being produced, both within research and at all levels of education. Taking stock of interdisciplinarity as it nears its century mark, The Oxford Handbook of Interdisciplinarity constitutes a major new reference work on a topic of growing academic and societal importance. The collection is distinguished by its breadth of coverage, with chapters written by leading experts from multiple networks and organizations. The volume is edited by respected interdisciplinary scholars and supported by a prestigious advisory board to ensure the highest quality and breadth of coverage. The Oxford Handbook of Interdisciplinarity provides a synoptic overview of the current state of interdisciplinary research, education, administration and management, and problem solving-knowledge that spans the disciplines and interdisciplinary fields, and crosses the space between the academic community and society at large.Its 37 chapters and 15 case studies provide a snapshot of the state of knowledge integration. Offering the most broad-based account of inter- and transdisciplinarity to date, its original essays bring together many of the globe's leading thinkers on interdisciplinary research, education, and the institutional aspects of interdisciplinarity, as well as reflections on how knowledge is integrated into societal needs.
