The Politics of Interdisciplinary Studies: Essays on Transformations in American by Tanya Augsburg
English | ISBN: 0786441682 | edition 2009 | PDF | 288 pages | 9,5 mb

This collection of essays first highlights the popularity of interdisciplinary undergraduate studies and their recent gains in the world of higher education, and then addresses the paradoxical failure of these studies to achieve a permanent position in the curricula of individual universities and colleges. This question and its attendant issues are explored in three ways: an overview of how these changes are affected by the political economy, casestudies from actual universities and colleges, and, a discussion of the new ways undergraduates are educated through the use of interdisciplinary studies.
