What Is This Thing Called Interdisciplinarity? Teaching Interdisciplinary Methods Courses in American Studies - Rebecca Hill
Acknowledgments: Thanks first to the many students who have struggled with me through American Studies 7100 at Kennesaw State, and especially to Anna Tussey and Lissa Small for allowing me to use examples from their work in the class. I’d also like to thank Julie Sze for organizing the forum, and to Julie again, as well as Wendy Kozol, Kevin Murphy, Andrew Ross , and Shelley Streeby for participating in the forum “What is this Thing Called Interdisciplinarity” at the ASA in Toronto. Big thanks to Paul Lauter, who shared a slice of pie with me in the Albuquerque airport after another great ASA and encouraged me to write about teaching.
