In the 2007–8 academic year the University of Chicago and the Franke Institute for the Humanities will open the Center for Disciplinary Innovation. This new center is a direct result of work begun during the Franke Institute's three–year Mellon Project, "New Perspectives on the Disciplines: Comparative Studies in Higher Education." The center will be a place for pedagogical collaboration and innovation, complementing the established disciplines and departments. The center will offer graduate team–taught courses that will keep the disciplinary questions continually in focus while bringing attention to issues of broad concern, particularly those of method and epistemology. Unlike other programs in team teaching, this one will constitute the faculty participants as a fellowship, a group whose aim is to reflect on their disciplinary practices in this experimental setting.
