Interdisciplinarity in action, while not always easy, is an exciting opportunity for individuals in different fields to conjoin their best assets and create projects that broaden and amplify their strengths in order to address sprawling, tangled problems that are bigger than can be fully addressed by any one discipline. One such project is Green Streets in South Tucson, a collaboration among members of both the University of Arizona and wider Tucson community.

The Graduate Center’s Interdisciplinary Collaborations Lecture Series begins Friday, January 27, 4:30 to 5:30 PM, in the Student Union Kachina Lounge (all lectures to take place Fridays at the same time and place). Professor Ellen McMahon and Eric Magrane will present Creating Intersections Across Communities: Institute of the Environment’s Arts, Environment and Humanities Network.  Throughout the series, attendees will share the experience and insights of participants in four initiatives that bring together diverse perspectives from the sciences, arts, humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and communities around the globe. In addition to discussing their innovative projects and synergies, experts will address best practices for creating, building, and maintaining collaborative initiatives.
