Abstract

Future prospects for the humanities and social sciences (HSS) are often discussed through the ‘insider’ lens of political and institutional pressures. Taking up themes from the first two panels, this panel will take a step back from these immediate concerns and initiate a conversation with scholars studying the development of knowledge systems in a range of disciplines from philosophy, the history of knowledge, the sociology of knowledge, and future research. Why is interdisciplinary research considered a virtue? Would it be bad if the humanities disappeared from universities? Which modes and arrangements of knowledge production from other times and places could inspire our imagination?
