Ethical Interdisciplinary Collaboration to Enhance Humanistic Thinking

The development of an “Ethical Interdisciplinary” partnership that will expand the role of humanities education for undergraduates.

This planning grant will allow us to apply ethical interdisciplinarity at Allegheny College to enhance the impact of the humanities. We define ethical interdisciplinarity as interdisciplinary partnerships that allow scholars to learn with one another, rather than to learn about each other in isolation. Our planning committee will develop plans for the following: 1) interdisciplinary team-taught courses that intentionally connect the humanities and the sciences, 2) an investigation of the influence of the humanities in existing interdisciplinary programs, 3) the expansion of the humanities in experiential programming, 4) the incorporation of the humanities into Allegheny’s new model of adaptive advising, 5) the establishment of protocol for interdisciplinary and collaborative senior capstone projects, and 6) the development of interdisciplinary research and teaching teams. This work will align current and proposed initiatives to achieve curricular and co-curricular coherence.
