I care about creating things which have meaning, inherent value and interdisciplinary purpose in a discordant and fractured world where I passionately believe that being interdisciplinary gives people the tools they need to live their lives more effectively and to cope a little better with making sense of the experiences they wrestle with on a daily basis.
Rob Fisher – Network Leader

Inter-Disciplinary.Net is a forum for the exchange and interaction of ideas, research and points of view that bear on a wide range of issues of concern and interest in the contemporary world. We promote and sponsor inter- and multi-disciplinary encounters by bringing people together from differing contexts, disciplines, professions, and vocations, with the aim to engender and nurture engagements that cross the boundaries of intellectual work. Our projects, conferences and publishing activities are creative and novel, and they evolve constantly as we seek out and foster emergent developments.

Inter-Disciplinary dialogue enables people to go beyond the boundaries of what they usually encounter and share in perspectives that are new, challenging, and richly rewarding. This kind of dialogue often illuminates one’s own area of work, is suggestive of new possibilities for development, and creates exciting horizons for future conversations with persons from a wide variety of national and international settings.

We are committed to the view that inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary work is the only credible way forward in a rapidly changing world. We cordially invite you to be partners in the dialogue.
