Membership Sections

Member Sections

For the better part of half a century, the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies has worked to enable the scholarly and professional work of its members.  In 2015, the Board of Directors of the AIS decided to enhance the activities of its members through the formation of Sections.

Role within the Association: Sections offer members, and prospective members, of AIS additional opportunities to engage the various processes of interdisciplinary interaction in particular substantive areas.  Although Section members enjoy opportunities to work with other members within each Section, those members are encouraged to engage the members of other Sections in collaborative efforts.
