Kritika Kultura, the international refereed journal of language, literary,
and cultural studies of the Department of English, Ateneo de Manila
University, in cooperation with the Rizal Library, will organize a series
of university-wide roundtable discussions on interdisciplinarity. In the
roundtable series, different academics from various fields gather to talk
about the recent developments—foremost of which is the implementation of
interdisciplinarity—in higher education.

The first roundtable will be on *Sept. 1, 2014, 4:30 to 6:00 p.m., at the
4th floor, new Rizal Library*. It will discuss the theoretical and
historical underpinnings of interdisciplinarity. ​The panel is composed of
Dr. Ma. Assunta Cuyegkeng of the Ateneo Institute of Sustainability, Dr.
Ramon Guillermo of the University of the Philippines Diliman, and Dr.
Francis Gealogo of the Department of History, Ateneo de Manila University.
Serving as rapporteur is Prof. Michael Pante of the Department of History,
Ateneo de Manila University.


In this series, scholars, practitioners, and administrators engage in
dialogue and critique as to how interdisciplinarity is imagined,
understood, and practiced. The series will be divided into three main
categories: the historical, operational, and institutional aspects. The
roundtable aims to contribute to ways in which interdisciplinarity is
defined and practiced in the general education curriculum of higher
educational institutions. The second installment—on the practice of
interdisciplinarity—will be on Sept. 8, 2014. The third installment—on the
institutional implications of interdisciplinarity—will be on Sept. 22,
2014. All sessions will be in the 4th floor, new Rizal Library.
