They represent some of the current thinking and practice of interdisciplinary research, and are an outcome of the 1st Cross-Disciplinary Research Conference held at the University of Nottingham.
This book consists of a collection of contributions on interdisciplinary theory and practice, as viewed through the experience of ‘new’ interdisciplinarians. It spans a variety of disciplines such as education, psychology, law, architecture, media, and health care. Its purpose is to contribute to the emerging literature and academic debate in interdisciplinary research and to give new interdisciplinarians a voice.
