Tips and Strategies for Enacting Interdisciplinary Scholarship and Working Collaboratively
February 11 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EST| Free
Within the DH community, we often talk about interdisciplinarity and collaboration as a given. But in reality, there remain very real obstacles to working in these ways. Institutional resistance, orthodoxy in one’s field, or a lack of visible partners can all make it very difficult to find the proper environment to do interdisciplinary or collaborative work. In this session, we hope to gather people from both sides of the coin, those who’ve been able to find collaborations and those for whom it has been a struggle. We will share strategies and stories and discuss how along with administrative, disciplinary, and technical obstacles, these environments can be both enabled and hindered by personalities and dispositions towards working together and negotiating how to manage the reins of control.
