LASER Talks: "Interdisciplinary challenges in the predoctoral phase. Art and science of the PhD"

Friday 13th January 2023 at 6pm CET Las Naves - Center for social and urban innovation of the city of Valencia. C/ de Joan Verdeguer, 16, 46024 València Free entrance until full capacity is reached Language: Spanish


Interdisciplinary strategies as research, educational and innovation practices are a reality of our times. Today we accept as a very positive value the impulse of interaction between the different specialties of knowledge and techniques. This network of interaction opens up the possibility of establishing unexpected creative connections, which are key to imagining and building livable futures. The doctoral stage is the academic access route to research practice, and therefore, establishing, making visible and formalizing these interdisciplinary guidelines in these early stages of research not only shows a commitment to these dynamics by the new generations, but also offers us the possibility of understanding the evolution and positions of those who today exercise interdisciplinarity as a projection on their future, and therefore on what is common and shared. However, the practice of interdisciplinarity also presents particularities, fragmentations and obstacles. In this LASERTalk we will analyze the characteristics of interdisciplinary work through a debate with two pre-doctoral researchers, Amanda Ramón Constantí (Architect) and Patricia Cadavid (Artist), where we will analyze under these open and interdisciplinary premises the concepts and practices of the creative, the collective, the technological, the critical and the political, ... building a multiple view that understands knowledge and research from the position of alliance and collaboration.
