Transdisciplinarity and the Humanities: Problems, Methods, Histories, Concepts

AHRC-funded workshop

Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy

This two-day workshop  examined the notion of a transdisciplinarity problematic, via the cases of anti-humanism and gender studies. The first day approached theoretical anti-humanism from the standpoint of its destructive effect upon disciplinary fields in the humanities and as a radical problematisation of the discipline of philosophy in particular. The second day explored gender studies as a transdisciplinary problematic and the transdisciplinary nature of the concept of gender itself. Topics included the historical reconstruction of ‘gender’ as a boundary-crossing concept; the relation of its conceptual content to its functioning as a general concept across disciplines; the transformation of the disciplines in the humanities by ‘gender’ and gender studies; and the current productivity of ‘gender’.

Participants included: Peter Osborne, Etienne Balibar, Patrice Maniglier, Nina Power, David Cunningham, Simon Morgan Wortham, Stella Sandford, Tuija Pulkkinen, Sara Heinamaa, Elsa Dorlin, Ken Corbett and Lynne Segal.
