C2C 2013’s Theme


Boundaries can both constrain and guide our lives; we are faced by physical and geographical boundaries, restricted by language barriers, even bound by our own assumptions.  However, by being interdisciplinary students we are crossing boundaries, both disciplinary boundaries in our studies and community boundaries in our social lives. This fact is at the heart of why we have chosen “boundaries” as the theme for C2C 2013, because we believe that we can apply our interdisciplinary learning to assess, shift, and transcend those boundaries we encounter. We can examine what boundaries are in the context of interdisciplinary studies, what their implications are for how we learn and work, and how they can become malleable through interdisciplinary thinking.  We can change where boundaries are currently set or even abolish them altogether!
