Undertaking interdisciplinary research can be hugely rewarding and enables the researcher to explore perspectives and concepts from other disciplines. This seminar will give doctoral students the opportunity to reflect on their research methods and the means in which their research is and is not interdisciplinary in nature.
The seminar is aimed at both students who are undertaking an explicitly interdisciplinary study and those who are doing a PhD in Law but are considering whether a method or approach from another discipline might enrich their work. A series of cross-cutting issues will be discussed, including building interdisciplinary networks; stakeholder engagement and collaboration; publishing interdisciplinary research, and the challenges and benefits of interdisciplinarity as such. Students will be given the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from experts invited for the occasion, as well as other participants.
A lunchtime panel on careers in the fields of law, criminal sciences and public administration will provide perspectives on career development from speakers from a range of career stages and disciplinary focuses, with a focus on women's careers but open to all.
