Title:Interdisciplinary Diversity in the iSchool Community
Author(s):Wiggins, Andrea
Subject(s):Interdisciplinary research
diversity
iSchools
Abstract:Interdisciplinary research is both challenging and increas- ingly imperative to addressing many intellectual, social and practical problems. This poster presents a proposed empir- ical study of interdisciplinary diversity in the iSchool com- munity. Developing a better understanding of the factors that allow interdisciplinary academic endeavors to survive and thrive is useful to both the iSchools, for which the re- search would provide strategic feedback, and to the broader scienti c community as a means of insight into cultivating in- terdisciplinary research. The proposed study is expected to contribute a methodological approach for evaluating diver- sity in an interdisciplinary community that will provide an objective basis for self-evaluation and community-level com- parisons, and empirical results that explore the relationship between interdisciplinary intellectual inputs and interdisci- plinary scholarly outputs in the iSchools.
