Cross-Disciplinary Exchange

During virtual seminars on a topic of shared interest, network members present and discuss multi-disciplinary approaches and research on a particular biosocial theme. This provides a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange, reflection, and critique across academics representing a wide variety of life science disciplines. We believe this sort of regular exchange is crucial to improving and enriching life course research, by promoting a space for equitable dialogue, collaboration, and inspiration.

Talks and Podcast Response

Below you can view the talks presented by network members during our online seminars. Alongside each talk, guest speakers from that week have recorded a podcast response to share their thoughts and feelings on their peer’s work. We hope you will enjoy exploring these cross-disciplinary exchanges in your own time.

Please note, talks and podcast responses are grouped by seminar theme. In some cases, you can view the talks as a PowerPoint presentation, in others as a filmed video. On the right hand-side you will find the podcast response to the presentation.
