Thresholds of Knowledge

The concept of thresholds allows us to examine not only the engagements and encounters between fields, forms and subjects of knowledge in interdisciplinary ways, but also to examine the ways in which knowledge
itself is constituted and constructed within disciplines, forms and subjects. The aim of this theme is to give voice to the negotiations of what counts as knowledge and the kinds of innovations as well as accommodations that are made at these thresholds of knowledge.

Thresholds of knowledge are always negotiated, always in process, and humanities scholarship both contributes to, and analyses, the forms and values of ‘knowledge’ both synchronically and diachronically. This research group aims to build on the rich disciplinary expertise of scholars throughout the College, as we face the ongoing challenge of the humanities to make sense of the increasingly chaotic world in which we live.
