Navigating Interdisciplinarity: a workshop

17th October 2014, 09:00 to 17:00, Learning Centre, Palace Green Library, Durham University, Led by Professor Veronica Strang and Dr Sandra Bell

Interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary collaboration contains challenges at each stage in the research process. These include different foci of attention; different conceptual approaches and models; different languages; different kinds of data and forms of analysis; different kinds of output; different measures or assessments of quality. How can interdisciplinary projects be developed coherently? How do practitioners learn to engage productively with other disciplinary areas? In a partnership between the Institute of Advanced Study and the Department of Anthropology, this one-day workshop makes use of anthropology’s expertise in cultural translation.

Designed to assist cross-disciplinary communication and support collaborative interdisciplinary research, the workshop will focus examples on the IAS’s annual theme and include members of the IAS Fellowship.
