Inhalt This interdisciplinary research lab invites student to reflect on different lenses that can be used in order to produce knowledge on selected objects and to think about the challenges of interdisciplinary research to deal with these problems.
The specific object investigated by this seminar is the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (SAGCOT). The SAGCOT was launched by the Government of Tanzania in 2010 in order to enhance food security and reduce poverty through public-private partnerships.
While we will look at the concrete, practial and solution oriented aspects of this growth corridor and discuss the role of agriculture for growth and well-being, we will also discuss the role of different disciplinary and interdisciplinary views when reflecting on processes on the ground.

Lernziele - Familiarisation with the concepts of disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity
- Gain knowledge and experience on the challenges and opportunities of interdisciplinary analysis
- Reflect on the role of science for development
- Learn about the idea behind growth corridors and how they are implemented
- Reflect on the role of agriculture for achieving the SDGs
