What is Interdisciplinarity NOW?

Friday 24 May 2024 (11:00-12:30)

This event is the first of an occasional series that asks ‘What is interdisciplinarity now?’.

Our query reflects not only how vibrant and fast-moving the field of Mental Health Humanities is, but also how it is adapting to the changing fortunes of academia and the shifting sands of our uncertain world.

We are joined by Drs Jennifer Wallis and Ed Kiely, and Georgia Poplett, who as a panel will discuss how interdisciplinarity features in their work, and explore the benefits and issues that being interdisciplinary brings. The last section of the session will act as a surgery for the Mental Health Humanities Researcher Network, offering an informal space in which to broach problems and seek advice about interdisciplinarity. We welcome anyone who works within the Mental Health Humanities to come along and join the discussion and join our mailing list and network.


11:00 - 12:00 Roundtable with Dr Jennifer Wallis, Ed Kiely, and Georgia Poplett.
