Knowledge as Disobedience,
Expression and Creativity.

What is this Conference about?



Following the success of the 1st International Conference on Postdisciplinary Approaches held in Neuchatel, Switzerland (19-22 June, 2013) and the second conference hosted by the Copenhagen Business School (22-24 June, 2015), we are delighted to announce that the 3rd event will take place in Auckland, New Zealand, from 2-5 February 2018.

The theme for our Auckland gathering is 

Knowledge as Disobedience, Expression and Creativity.

We welcome all types of presentations that address postdisciplinarity in a range of contexts – including, but not limited to, epistemology and knowledge production, practice and action, ways of being and becoming, and relational theory. We particularly encourage non-western perspectives vis-à-vis oral literature, art and performance.  

Postdisciplinarity has been previously articulated as an invitation to different interpretations, critical analysis, and creative problem solving

– extending also to questioning conventional processes of knowledge making.

To appreciate the breadth and scope of Postdisciplinary approaches, we invite you to read the special issue which emerged out of the first conference in Neuchatel – 

published recently in Tourism Analysis Volume 21, Number 4.


The 3rd International Conference on Postdisciplinary Approaches

is open to academics from all walks of life, regardless of disciplinary background or affiliation. Researchers are invited to present in the form of research papers, movies or audio-visual material, exhibitions, performances, music, literary writings such as poetry or short stories and other creative expressions. A combination of several of these is also very much welcome. We recognize that there are a number of different ways in which research can be communicated; we are committed to accommodating such needs.

If you are planning to join us, please pre-register by clicking on this register link.

This will help us with the conference organization and to determine the final registration costs.

Please note that the conference will be limited to 120 delegates. 


We are looking forward to seeing you in summery Auckland in 2018!
