Back in January, I published a short piece on an interdisciplinary workshop that I’d run with Althea Davies and Kath Allen at the British Ecological Society’s Annual Meeting in December 2019, in Belfast….back when many people gathered together in small spaces, and hugged. Today, the Relational Thinking blog of the BES’s Journal People and Nature, published the extended write-up of the event and our learnings from it. Please have a gander if you’re interested. Preparing it recently for publication, both Althea and I remembered how exciting and stimulating it had been for us to run the event and reflect on it afterwards. We are currently working on extending and sharing our learning, and that of several invited others, in a new Guide to Better Science, which we hope to be published by the BES next summer. Hopefully these resources provide some structure and inspiration for interdisciplinary endeavours out there, be them in person or on Zoom!
