Can Hegel and Hitchcock Come Together: Theorizing Sustainable Interdisciplinarity"
Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies
Drawing on such contemporary continental philosophers as Alain Badiou and Slavoj Zizek, ones who make connections between Hegel and Hitchcock, I theorize interdisciplinarity as a conscious, overdetermined "worldly" practice. I argue that such a practice arises out of--among other things--the need to make connections among otherwise scattered and disparate phenomena, while finally I move in the direction of focusing on the pedagogical implications and applications of a "sustainable" and engaged interdisciplinarity--one that, as I further argue, is likely to help us understand how unequal power-relations continue to inform and inflect the practices of our everyday life.
