UCalgary is committing resources, developing capacity, and enabling transdisciplinary collaboration across our campuses and communities, continuing our tradition of interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary paradigms, all built on a foundation of disciplinary excellence. Led by the Office of the Vice-President (Research), the Transdisciplinary Scholarship initiative is deploying a series of opportunities and programs.
Through Fall 2022-Winter 2023, scholars participated in a series of gatherings to (re-) connect with colleagues, identify potential collaborations, and advance conversations around opportunities for transdisciplinary initiatives.
Additional programs and opportunities will be shared with the campus community over the coming year.
Scholarship built around problems, opportunities, and possibilities, not professions. People from multiple backgrounds working together on challenges. Transdisciplinary scholarship focusses on building knowledge between, across and beyond traditional disciplines. In a complex time of ever-increasing specialization, it tackles the big questions of our day that do not fit into one department or one faculty but require important contributions from those units and beyond. It’s a way to create knowledge and to generate solutions.
