Without a doubt, significant contemporary global and societal issues are forcing universities to re-examine their curricula to ensure students are prepared to meet the challenges of today’s world.

Dr. Quayson’s re-thinking of interdisciplinarity from a humanistic and interpretive perspective offers a unique approach to building a truly inclusive and holistic university curriculum for the 21st century.
