Meeting Description: The nature of contemporary/global problems necessitates solutions that integrate knowledge and methodologies from distinct disciplines. Interdisciplinary perspectives to the interpretation, teaching and study of literature and language create avenues for critics, teachers and students to synthesize more than one discipline, and enrich the overall educational experience. The pedagogy of traditional methodologies encourages concentration on only one discipline; but the dynamism in the availability and flow of information in the age of technology requires an eclectic approach. While proponents of interdisciplinarity argue that it expands understanding and achievement between all disciplines, critics argue that it leads to integration confusion.
