This is not a Gardening Book | Wander M. van Baalen, Jana Thierfelder, Patrick Müller (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

The cultivation of transdisciplinary practices. A work by many

This is not a Gardening Book collects essays and glossary entries that open new pathways for doing more-than-disciplinary educational work. The contributors to this volume – students, scholars, and artists from a diverse range of intellectual and disciplinary backgrounds – explore the transformative potential of education that does not stop at disciplinary and institutional borders. The book is meant to be taken up as a “tool to think with”. May it serve as a catalyst for thinking about and experimenting with new modalities of transdisciplinary teaching and learning.
