September (25th) meeting of the Interdisciplinary Community of Practice

Dear Members of the Interdisciplinary Community of Practice (ICoP) at UBC,

we are pleased to announce. or remind you, of our first meeting of the academic year on Thursday September 25th from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm in the Irving K Barber Learning Centre, Fraser River Room (Room 2.27).

Please visit the event page here to register.

Given that this is the first meeting of the year, and in the new ICoP structure, we invite participants to help us explore the meaning of ‘interdisciplinarity’. There are many neologisms that are often conflated with interdisciplinarity (i.e. multidisciplinary, crossdisciplinary, nondisciplinary, transdisciplinary) it is our hope to explore what interdisciplinarity is, and what sets it apart –if anything- from other practices.

All the best, and see you next week,


Conor Douglas on behalf of the ICoP co-facilitators.
