The Challenges of Interdisciplinarity

We've gathered a number of speakers from inside and outside UCL to talk about their experiences of, and thoughts on, interdisciplinarity.
They all have very different backgrounds, and have faced very different
challenges:

Andrew Harris, /UCL Urban Lab/
Matthew Taunton, /London Consortium/
Muki Haklay, /UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering/

A discussion will follow in which we will consider challenges applying specifically to interdisciplinarity in the Arts and Humanities.

Why Public Engagement?

Public Engagement is something of a buzzword at the moment, but it's not always easy to see how it relates to your research.
For this session, UCL's Public Engagement Unit will be joining us to talk about what Public Engagement is, and why you should be doing it, and a number of experienced Public Engagers will be talking about how they find the time, the resources, and last but not least, the funds, to take their research outside of the academy.

There will also be a short workshop in which you will have a chance to give shape to your ideas and get feedback from the speakers.

Looking forward to seeing you there! Don't forget, if you've got any queries, comments or suggestions, get in touch direct by emailing us.

- Alicia, Alex and Nicky
