This is a transdisciplinary course taught by professors from the universities of Lausanne and Lancaster. It aims at making disciplines and institutional practices meet and dialogue, as it is the organizers’ belief that the current economic and ecological crises and all its human dimensions can only be apprehended by a refounding of our sense of community. The aim of the course is to introduce students to transdisciplinary studies; it requires from them to get out of their disciplinary comfort zone to confront new forms of discourse, understand the effects of their own discipline on the world and on others, and reflect together with others on new solutions to our impending problems.Master students from 3 different faculties can take the course (HEC, FGSE, Lettres).
