While some questions and problems are best tackled with the methods and concepts of a single discipline, others require knowledge and understanding from different disciplines. Given this, universities, funding agencies and groups of investigators are looking for ways to support interdisciplinary teaching and research. Yet there are relational and structural issues to communicating and collaborating across epistemic domains, and little attention has been given to understanding and learning from actual interdisciplinary experiences.
In this workshop Professor Cleland will ask you to work together, drawing on the literature and your own academic autobiographies, with the aim of reflecting on some of the pearls and perils of doing interdisciplinary teaching and/or research.
