New publication: Doing Collaborative Research on Symphonic Orchestra Audiences: Interventionist Ethnography of Music Practices
The new year starts with a fresh publication! For the edited volume Interdisciplinarity in the Scholarly Life Cycle: Learning by Example in Humanities and Social Science Research (2023), edited by Karin Bijsterveld and Aagje Swinnen and published by Palgrave, I wrote together with Peter Peters, Imogen Eve and Jos Roeden about our experiment The People’s Salon (part of the Artful Participation project). In the article, we reflect on the practical work that goes into interdisciplinary collaboration and interventionist ethnography, using Dewey and Sennett (amongst others) to show the rituals, pleasures, and politics shape collaboration and cooperation, and what role different kinds of conversations play in collaborative research.
The book contains many really interesting and challenging chapters by colleagues of the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences in Maastricht, all showing the intricacies, gains, and challenges of interdisciplinarity as a scholarly virtue and practice.
