No real progress comes without first facing down a challenge.  Inter-disciplinary exchanges can certainly create challenges, as researchers learn to communicate and work with each other across norms established by traditional academic boundaries.  But these challenging moments create profound moments of learning and breakthroughs in research.  To solve problems, sometimes you have to “reprogram to expand.” 

Dr. Sasha Mullally

During her lecture, Dr. Mullally will examine the prospects for humanities-engineering interdisciplinary work, drawing from recent research from across Canada and the United States, as well as her own interdisciplinary research which bridges social history and geomatics.
