45th Annual Conference of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies

Conference Theme: Transformative Shifts: Integration, Wholeness, and Wellness

 

October 26-28, 2023, Lubbock, TX

 

As we have collectively endured many transformative shifts in the way we work, teach, interact, engage, and relate to one another. Our conference theme hopes to encourage scholars and practitioners to help us articulate our understanding and practice of integration, wholeness, and wellness.

 

The entire world has experienced many adversities in recent years, such as the pandemic, changes in political landscapes, wars, issues surrounding immigration, among others. These adversities have also uncovered a greater need to respond in transformative ways within communities, higher education spaces, workplaces, families, and relevant relationships. The committee is inviting participants to explore integration, wholeness, and wellness in the context of religion and spirituality, mental health, social justice, socio-cultural, immigration, higher education, and related spheres, and to express the need and strategies for inter- and trans- disciplinary research and complex problem-solving. We are interested in the scholarship and application of inter-/trans-disciplinarity as it relates to complex and wicked problems within the identified subthemes.
