Abstract

Interdisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity a nd other variants on disciplinarity are now thriving topics of academic and policy interest. There is much talk of the need for novel institutional arrangements and a new knowledge „culture‟ which might better support modes of communication, thinking and p ractice that foster and sustain collaborative work between, across and beyond disciplines. Transdisciplinarity in particular is often presented in terms of a vital transformation in the nature of knowledge production and in the relations between „science‟ and „society‟, although different accounts emphasize different aspects. In this study, entitled “Interdisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity and psychosocial studies”, we focus on inter and transdisciplinary research that goes under the label of psychosocial studies. In principle, such work cuts across the boundaries between the various psy - sciences and practices and the various social sciences, especially sociology, but work operating under this label may also draw more broadly upon influences from the natur al sciences and the humantitiess. This topic was of particular interest since Psychosocial Studies has become a core research theme in SASS. The findings will thus prove of use to the further development of this group, and to the articulation of specific r esearch programmes.
