It is common to consider the field boundaries within the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences as a two-way classification between “the humanities” and “the sciences.” However, given that there are a variety of ways to classify academic disciplines, it is inappropriate to unconsciously or uncritically accept such a division. In this panel, researchers with a variety of experience in contending with disciplinary boundaries will discuss examples of research areas that lie between “the humanities” and ” the sciences.” They will also speak about the relationship between academic discipline and education, and how we can reconsider the way that academic fields are classified.
