New Forms of Organising Research

In recent years interdisciplinary collaboration between different subjects has increased, particularly in the new organizational forms of science (SFBs, clusters).

  • What does it mean for gender dynamics, when two disciplines with different proportions of women and different gender cultures are working together?
  • Do hybrid dynamics arise?
  • Do these hybrids, compared to classical disciplinary research, promote or hinder women?
  • Are there general dynamics, or do they emerge in association with specific types of interdisciplinary collaboration?

Based on four case studies of both SFBs and clusters, we try to answer these questions using ethnographic methods and interviews.
