Horizons Methods Link 2

Discover how methods can start an interdisciplinary conversation

Understanding research methodologies from different disciplines can be a way of breaking down disciplinary barriers and starting interdisciplinary conversations. In these sessions researchers from different disciplines will be challenged to find commonality in their research methods and see whether this commonality might present a way to work together.

Join Horizons Institute to watch Professor Abigail Harrison Moore from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Culture and Dr Chris Hassall from the Faculty of Biolgical Sciences as they attempt to find commonality in their methods and approach to research.

As a participant, for this online session you will initally be asked to join one of our invited academics who will give you a short overview on the methods they use in their research. The second part of the session will be a discussion between the two academics to see where their methods or approaches may be similar. Participants will be invited to share observations and ask questions towards the end of the discussion.
