Valuing Interdisciplinary Collaborative Research
Distributed for Policy Press at the University of Bristol
Valuing Interdisciplinary Collaborative Research addresses this key challenge head-on. With a particular focus on research in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, contributors draw on nine contemporary case studies from fields as diverse as cultural anthropology and international development to explore the tensions that surround the evaluation and assessment of research both generally and in the context of more recent discussions of collaborative research. Accessibly written and featuring a glossary of key terms, traditions, concepts, and resources, this book moves beyond tired, polarized debates about the relative power of scholars and participants to judge the true value of collaborative research and helps develop the methods needed for all to reflect upon, enrich, and challenge their assumptions about the quality of this work.
