SHAPE-ID’s first webinar on 14th May 2020 addressed the importance of ensuring perspectives from the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences are part of the response to the COVID-19 crisis, with an international panel of speakers from the University of Aalborg (Denmark), the European Alliance for Social Sciences and Humanities (EASSH) and NUI Galway (Ireland). While immediate responses have understandably tended to focus on funding research that can fight the virus, our world and ways of living have changed suddenly and radically, and there is a widespread sense that we cannot return to the old “normal”. Why do the Arts, Humanities…

SHAPE-ID Results Discussed on “Transforming Society” Blog

SHAPE-ID Research Fellow Dr Bianca Vienni Baptista (ETH Zurich) was invited to share insights from the systematic literature review conducted in Work Package 2 on the new Bristol University Press blog "Transforming Society". The piece, "What factors help or hinder interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research?", explores the extent to which collaborative research practices present new contexts and challenges for research and how we can learn from the factors, identified in SHAPE-ID's work, that can help or hinder the development of such research. Importantly, our research finds that these factors for the most part can either help or hinder, depending on context,…
