The At the Interface Domain is a collection of projects focused on one common core philosophy: to create working ‘encounter’ groups between people coming from differing disciplines, professions, vocations and business contexts. By virtue of such a philosophy, all projects within the domain are concerned with how to achieve genuine inter- and trans-disciplinarity.
The research and publishing activities of the projects within the Hub consequently all engage with issues of methodology: how can people working in similar areas, tackling common sets of problems and issues, do so in a creative and consistent manner whilst preserving the distinctiveness of the context from which they come? The aim of the projects within the At the Interface (in italics) Hub is to tackle large research areas and begin to map the overall terrain with the aim of showing where interdisciplinary work can be undertaken and provide a point of interconnection between differing networks of methodologies.
The work of the projects are a means by which people of differing backgrounds and contexts can interact or begin to create a common terrain for further exploration. The Hub aims to assist and promote the possibility for collaborative global research and publications.
