Being a part of multi-disciplinary, and multi-institutional research projects presents unique trials and tribulations not always found when engaged in solo, or mono-disciplinary research. However such projects, which bring together the skills and perspectives of scholars from often wildly different academic backgrounds are becoming increasingly common in the contemporary research landscape. Even more than this, that landscape is becoming truly global in its scope, and projects which include scholars based on different continents are becoming increasingly normalised. Though potentially daunting, this multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional research landscape also offers enormous potential for collaborations and cooperations which transcend ontologies and epistemologies, and produce research far greater than the sum of its parts.
This session shall draw onto the real-world experience of having participated in several such multi-disciplinary and multi-institution research projects to offer insight and understanding into the realities of working in such a space, and hopes to ask what this might mean for YOUR careers as young researchers.
