Academic Boundaries at Work

This two day international research workshop will set to open new conversations about the porosity and permeability of academic boundaries, exploring different possibilities of collaboration in the social sciences and humanities. In the actual context of academic capitalism, trans-national research infrastructures, and accelerated transformations of scholarship, it is more relevant than ever to reconsider the shifting roles in and across universities, the possibility of and benefits from disciplinary unlearning, and the way in which disciplines depend on how practitioners define their own matters of relevance and evidence. We will discuss various modes of research engagement and collaborations in the field, reflecting on how notions of knowledge changes across space and time, as well as between disciplines, affecting in turn what people can know – the quality of being knowledgeable.

  • Organiser: Dr. Francisco Martinez and Visiting Academic Fellow Dr. Patrick Laviolette.
