ASU humanities faculty, along with engineers, geographers, artists, social scientists, and biologists are stepping outside of their professional comfort zones to learn from one another, while incorporating humanities perspectives into their shared research interests.
Beyond that, these multidisciplinary teams are actually changing the way researchers seek and use knowledge as they restructure conventional ideas about how people think, how human beliefs can affect the environment, and how the humanities relate to the sciences. This approach not only allows scholars to address socially significant issues, but it often provides a new way for policymakers—and ordinary citizens—to look at pertinent issues and develop innovative solutions.
