I’m interested in exploring the relationship between social studies and science. I’ve spent a lot of time in the social studies world for past 12 years.
I also understand “transdisciplinary” to extend beyond academe to involve a broader array of stakeholders. For example, an investigation of pollution in a local riverbed might include researchers across academic disciplines collaborating with state, regional, and local ofﬁcials, environmental groups, additional community associations, as well as nearby residents to better understand the causes and consequences of the pollution and to devise ways to solving the problem. Interaction, collaboration, and mutual learning among all these participants are central to this type of inquiry.
