Call for proposal: Interdisciplinarity in Global Contexts

From 24-26 October 2019, the annual AIS conference takes place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, organized by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).The conference brings together interdisciplinary researchers, educators, students, alumni and administrators.
The theme of the conference will be ‘Interdisciplinarity in Global Contexts’. Since a defining feature of interdisciplinarity is not to abstract or isolate problems but rather to approach them in their real-world contexts, this conference theme asks participants to consider the global and local contexts of interdisciplinary education and research.

You are invited to send in your proposal relating to the conference theme at Deadline for submission is April 1st. We are especially looking for proposals that can start a debate, encourage audience involvement and a lively dialogue with all participants.
The conference theme is divided in four subthemes: Theme 1- Adressing local and global contexts in research and education Theme 2- People, concepts, and methods crossing borders Theme 3- Methodologies of interdisciplinary education and research Theme 4- Adjusting interdisciplinarity towards future challenges
