This video overview of interdisciplinarity identifies major developments over a century of work in an expanding variety of contexts, the communities of practices that emerged, and current trendlines. (Interdisciplinarity is nearing its 100th anniversary, dating from the earliest documented uses of the term in the early 20th century.)
This collection of cases on a range of topics including heart disease, neuroscience, positive health, aging and HIV/AIDS illustrates collaborative research across the social, behavioral, and bio-medical sciences.
This collection of cases illustrates how to draw on disciplinary insights, as well as different approaches to integration. They are based on Repko’s model of the interdisciplinary research process (found in Interdisciplinary Research: Process and Theory, 2008; second edition 2012).
