This conference, marking the first PhD submissions by holders of the AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award (CDA), will provide an opportunity to reflect upon the initial successes and challenges of the scheme. As well as discussing the experience and benefits of cross-institutional research, several panels will be dedicated to the sharing of research carried out under the scheme. Not only do such projects have their idiosyncratic practical and methodological challenges, they also tend to open up specific epistemological questions and areas of study which this conference aims to explore in a comparative forum.
In addition to the main sessions, a public debate to be held at Tate Britain will move beyond this particular funding scheme to reflect more generally upon inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional research collaboration. It will contextualise the work of the CDA scheme and encourage reflection upon the broader implications and potentiality of knowledge transfer and collaborative research.
The two-day conference is organisecd by the London Network of CDA Holders in collaboration with the Institute of Historical Research and will take place at the University of London in February 2009. The event is aimed at researchers and practitioners involved in an existing CDA project, those who are planning to set up a new project and everybody with a general interest in collaborative research.
