International Transdisciplinarity Conference 2017 (11.-15.09.2017)

Transdisciplinary Research and Education — Intercultural Endeavours
September 11-15, 2017, Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany

The International Transdisciplinarity Conference in 2017 is co-organised by Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany and the Network for Transdisciplinary Research of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences.

The overall objective of the conference is to strengthen communities of transdisciplinary research and education and to create visibility for theoretical, empirical and transformative advances/results. The focus of the conference is on interculturality. Participants will explore transdisciplinary research and education as intercultural endeavours concerning epistemologies, worldviews, practices, and place-based differences.

With this emphasis, we will bring together representatives of different world regions, institutions, cultures, and communities. We envisage a space for taking a culturally sensitive look at transdisciplinarity. By doing so, we will also explore interfaces and foster the potential of transdisciplinarity to deal with heterogeneity and difference.
