Navigating Interdisciplinarity Workshops: 2015/16


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, two one-day workshops make use of anthropology’s expertise in cultural translation and cross-cultural understandings. Designed to assist cross-disciplinary communication and support collaborative interdisciplinary research, the workshop will focus examples on the IAS’s annual theme. It will be offered to IAS Fellows, its COFUND Fellows, and to Durham researchers hoping to collaborate across disciplines. It will also be used for post-graduate training.

Dates are 14 October 2015 and 20 January 2016, Learning Centre, Palace Green Library; however for additional information and to register interest please contact: enquiries.ias@durham.ac.uk.
