Interdisciplinary research with children, young people and families: crossing boundaries, sharing stories

Wednesday 7th September 2016, 09.30-16.30

Newton building, Avenue Campus

Boundary-crossing research methods, projects, debates and collaborations are increasingly valued and fostered by research funders, and are increasingly understood to produce rich, impactful and important research, but can also cause interdisciplinary tensions and challenges.  In these contexts the conference will bring together researchers from a range of disciplines to explore: (1) collaboration between different academic disciplines; (2) the development of collaborative research methods and practices; (3) interactions between different institutions’ ways of working, and (4) new interdisciplinary ways of thinking/writing about children, youth and families.  Professor Claire Freeman (University of Otago) will be giving a keynote address.  Details of how to register for the conference can be found here.
