[After discussions with embedded historians and philosophers] I’m starting to think about things differently.
The experience inspired me to formulate new questions and hypotheses.
My interactions with Tomomi and the other scientists at the MBL provided me with new ideas for future avenues of historical research that never would have occurred to me otherwise
The discussions opened my mind to the understanding on the current virtues and pitfalls of the system for which I am somehow expert.
This was a valuable opportunity to speak with philosophers and historians with whom I share interests.
It was nice to take the time to address philosophical issues within our research. The problems are known, but often ignored, as if they will somehow resolve themselves.
My research is already interdisciplinary, however, the conversations / discussion from this workshop opened my eyes as to how far the realm of interdisciplinary research can be extended.
