Necessity of Interdisciplinarity in Postdigital Science and Education
Contemporary science and education face complex problems of the postdigital world, a world in which the boundary between the humane and the digital is long gone. An integrative, holistic, interdisciplinary and, increasingly, transdisciplinary approach is of utmost importance in tackling and understanding modern day problems and phenomena. One of the institutions which advocates and implements such a scientific approach in humanities and social sciences is the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Osijek. Namely, its fundamental mission consists of bridging the formal division of social sciences and humanities from sciences pertaining to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) as an answer to the 21st century challenges. Accordingly, members of the Centre had conducted two waves of research during and after lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to analyze University of Osijek students’ attitudes towards online learning. Also, the Centre is organizing an annual international interdisciplinary Congress, which gathers numerous scientists from various fields of scientific research who advocate interdisciplinarity.
The Centre’s vision is to establish and intensify communication with experts from the private sector, with the goal of changing the negative employment trends and encouraging competitiveness of social sciences and humanities experts. Because of that, the Centre is organizing scientific inter_view, an interdisciplinary popular scientific event which involves discussion of experts and scientists addressing complex issues in both theory and practice. Furthermore, members of the Centre advocate both inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to the elucidation of complex social phenomena from previous historical periods, as well as social phenomena of the 21st century. Finally, the Centre is currently conducting a research project regarding scientific explorations of the phenomenon of interdisciplinarity in humanities and social sciences in Croatia.
