AFS members Regina Bendix and Dorothy Noyes have published Sustaining Interdisciplinary Collaboration: A Guide for the Academy, coauthored with the policy economist Kilian Bizer, just out from University of Illinois Press. Born of six years’ experience in the Göttingen Interdisciplinary Working Group on Cultural Property, this book is a reflective guide to collaborative research as social process, showing newcomers how to anticipate characteristic challenges, shepherd interaction, and capture interdisciplinary insights under inevitably frustrating working conditions. The authors are especially interested in the challenge of collaboration on hot-button social and policy issues: they discuss how to address varying disciplinary positionalities, how to work with the tricky slogan-concepts of public discourse (intangible cultural heritage, sustainability, etc.), and how to make use of the common sense of social problems.
