64335-01 - Seminar: Advanced Interdisciplinarity for European Global Studies 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Shrey Kapoor (shrey.kapoor@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt This student-led, discussion-based seminar is geared towards understanding and incorporating interdisciplinary perspectives in ongoing research projects at doctoral level. Beyond merely bringing together theories, literatures, and methods, we will focus on excavating ontological and epistemological presuppositions across disciplinary formations, and engage with the frictions and challenges that emerge when we destabilize these very presuppositions.
Lernziele 1) Understand the theoretical underpinnings (and impossibilities) surrounding current debates on interdisciplinarity
2) Incorporate interdisciplinary perspectives in ongoing research and writing
