On Saturday 4 November there is an opportunity to take part in this workshop exploring the risks and rewards of interdisciplinary research.
The workshop will bring together postgraduate research students: to get practical advice on the importance of interdisciplinarity for some categories of research funding; to discuss their research in relation to different disciplines; and to have an opportunity to build new intellectual networks with postgraduate researchers from across the College.
This half-day workshop will primarily be taught by colleagues from across the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy (SSHP), thus bringing together a range of disciplinary expertise and perspectives. Sessions will focus on:
- how scholars working in different intellectual traditions formulate research questions
- the importance of interdisciplinarity for research funding
- and the challenges of collaborating across disciplines.
The workshop is primarily targeted at postgraduate researchers in SSHP and other Schools within the College.
