Edgework: Intro to Interdisciplinary Studies


Course Abstract

Spring 2014 –┬áMTL229

In this weekly seminar, we will engage with guest speakers from different disciplinary backgrounds, who will talk about their own work, the methodologies of their discipline, and the difficulties and successes of interdisciplinarity. These discussions should help first year MTL PhD students explore the methodologies of different disciplines, as well as provide resources and possible connections with faculty whom students may want to work with on their dissertation and research projects.  The course is also open to all Stanford graduate students.
