9781452255668: Enhancing Communication & Collaboration in Interdisciplinary Research

Enhancing Communication & Collaboration in Interdisciplinary Research, edited by  Michael O′Rourke, Stephen Crowley, Sanford D. Eigenbrode, and J. D. Wulfhorst, is a volume of previously unpublished, state-of-the-art chapters on interdisciplinary communication and collaboration written by leading figures and promising junior scholars in the world of interdisciplinary research, education, and administration. Designed to inform both teaching and research, this innovative book covers the spectrum of interdisciplinary activity, offering a timely emphasis on collaborative interdisciplinary work. The book’s four main parts focus on theoretical perspectives, case studies, communication tools, and institutional perspectives, while a final chapter ties together the various strands that emerge in the book and defines trend-lines and future research questions for those conducting work on interdisciplinary communication.

About the Author:

Michael O’Rourke is Professor of Philosophy and faculty in AgBioResearch at Michigan State University. His research interests include environmental philosophy, the nature of epistemic integration and communication in collaborative, cross-disciplinary research, and the nature of linguistic communication between intelligent agents. He is Director of the Toolbox Project, an NSF-sponsored research initiative that investigates philosophical approaches to facilitating interdisciplinary research. He was principal investigator on the NSF-funded project, "Improving Communication in Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration" (SES-0823058), which extended the development and application of the “Toolbox” method designed to improve communication and understanding among members of cross-disciplinary research teams. He has published extensively on the topics of communication, interdisciplinary theory and practice, and robotic agent design. He has been a co-principal investigator or collaborator on funded projects involving autonomous underwater vehicles, biodiversity conservation, sustainable agriculture, and resilience in environmental systems. He co-founded and served as co-director of the Inland Northwest Philosophy Conference, an interdisciplinary conference on philosophical themes, and as co-editor of the Topics in Contemporary Philosophy series published by MIT Press.

Review:

"This book integrates a number of issues within interdisciplinary studies in new and interesting ways.  It makes highly theoretical material accessible with an engaging style that is scholarly without being stuffy.  The author is clearly well versed in science, philosophy, and higher education and achieves a balance across that learning. One of its great strengths is its explanations of very complex theoretical issues in language that it is possible for a well-educated person to understand without a disciplinary background in philosophy." (Betsy Greenleaf Yarrison 2013-03-15)

"The breadth is one of its strengths. There are a large number of approaches that include analysis of quantitative data, very detailed case studies, philosophical analysis, perspectives of administration and organization of universities, and collaborations between researchers and community members outside academia, just to name a few. These varied approaches force readers to think beyond the perhaps narrow aspects of interdisciplinary communication that affect their own research or teaching or programs. That is a welcome challenge." (Angela Hunter 2013-03-15)

"The text is extensively researched and well organized.  The author/authors have also managed to bring in historical elements in higher education, as well as current thinking in the field." (Dr. Gladys Palma de Schrynemakers 2013-03-15)
