Interdisciplinarity and the New Governance of Universities was the subject of the conference that sociologist Peter Weingart, professor at Bielefeld University (Germany) gave on July 28 at the IEA’s Events Room. Weingart discussed the challenges to developing interdisciplinary courses at universities. He focused on two major epistemological obstacles related to the nature of disciplines: deeply institutionalized forms of producing knowledge; and rigid organizational structures, enclosed in departments and faculties.
