“This book provides a well-grounded and meticulously described account of a number of projects involving ‘publics’ and external stakeholders in the process of doing research. The editors address a gap in academic knowledge, providing rich and useful detail about the nature of, and practices involved in, collaborative interdisciplinary research.” · Kate Pahl, University of Sheffield

Academics across the globe are being urged by universities and research councils to do research that impacts the world beyond academia. Yet to date there has been very little reflection amongst scholars and practitioners in these fields concerning the relationship between the theoretical and engaged practices that emerge through such forms of scholarship. Theoretical Scholarship and Applied Practice investigates the ways in which theoretical research has been incorporated into recent applied practices across the social sciences and humanities. This collection advances our understanding of the ethics, values, opportunities and challenges that emerge in the making of engaged and interdisciplinary scholarship.
