Worlding the Disciplines: An Interdisciplinary Conference February 25-28 2016

updated: 
Monday, August 17, 2015 - 3:07pm
University of South Carolina Program in Comparative Literature

Over the past two or three decades, as global economic and cultural integration has accelerated, academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences have begun to re-think what it means to practice an academic discipline in a global context. This shift has had different impacts in different disciplines. This has sometimes meant (re)discovering or inventing new objects of study, acquiring new skills, or even developing new theories and methods. Whatever the case, most disciplines continue to be challenged by the task of making their project a genuinely global one.
