Abstract

This paper explores how interdisciplinarity, that is, interdisciplinary research teams, mixed methods and concepts developed within more than one academic discipline can facilitate a broader exploration and deeper understanding of the social world. The author draws upon examples from the research literature, including her own doctoral thesis, to support this contention and concludes the paper with consideration of how interdisciplinary research can be developed further.

KeywordsInterdisciplinarity, multi-disciplinary theoretical lens, mixed methods, social work education
