Laura Severin on the Perils and Rewards of Interdisciplinary Scholarship

November 18 @ 12:05 pm - 1:15 pm
Talley Student Union, Room 4270, 2610 Cates Avenue
Raleigh, NC 27606 United States

This presentation traces the history of NC State’s cluster hiring program (The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program), begun in 2011, and focuses on the challenges of Humanities and Social Sciences faculty, first to be included in the program and then to establish effective partnerships with STEM faculty. Some of the difficulties have involved educating STEM faculty as to the value of Humanities and Social Sciences research, communicating across disciplinary languages, and organizing effective teams across different disciplinary cultures. Despite the challenges of working across truly disparate disciplines, the program has demonstrated, as have others nationally, that successful collaborations are possible and rewarding.
