Blank space Interdisciplinary research: intermittently theorised, frequently funded, increasingly valorised.

But how is it actually done?

In order to explore answers to this question, and in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust and Durham’s Centre for Medical Humanities, Hearing the Voice has created Working Knowledge.

Working Knowledge is a collection of Project Shorts: short, accessible introductions to the practical ins and outs of interdisciplinary research. Covering everything from managing a research project’s social media presence to conducting experimental design ‘hackathons’, the series is a must-read for anyone considering funding or embarking upon interdisciplinary research.

The resources in Working Knowledge span three distinct themes:  Working TogetherPeople & Roles and Engaging Others. Project Shorts in the initial collection include:

Working Knowledge was launched at the Wellcome Trust on the 19th of February 2015. We hope that in the future the collection will expand to include a range of Project Shorts from other interdisciplinary projects, and we would welcome the chance to discuss possible contributions from anyone who is interested in proposing ideas for Project Shorts from their own projects.

If you would like to propose an idea for a Project Short, please email us to discuss your contribution.

Series editors: Charles Fernyhough, Angela Woods and Victoria Patton.
