The article I found on interdisciplinary studies I found through the library database. Because I used the library database it was easy to pick an article that was peer reviewed, in full text, and that was from the last five years.
The article I chose is titled “What is this thing called Interdisciplinarity” by Rebecca Hill. The article discusses the increasing interest in interdisciplinary in the academic world, and the integration of it into the classroom. Hill states “During the assessment process our faculty had to articu- late interdisciplinarity as a learning outcome”, I thought this statement was relevant to me as an interdisciplinary student because it is also a learning outcome for me and my classmates as we take Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies to learn about what Interdisciplinary is and all of the different aspects of it.
This article was helpful of my thinking because its showcasing how you apply interdisciplinarity to a subject. The author of this article is program director who is teaching a graduate level american studies course, and she uses interdisciplinary in her work.
