The spaces between fields—or the "borderlands" between disciplines—represent unique opportunities for social inquiry. The Scholarly Borderlands initiative of the Social Science Research Council, supported in part by funding from SAGE Publications, Inc. and the Rockefeller Foundation, incubates interdisciplinary projects that ask novel questions, develop new frameworks, and find innovative answers. By convening researchers of different backgrounds, disciplines, and institutions, the initiative acts as a catalyst for dialogue, collaboration, and methodological development that produces creative scholarship and builds fresh ties within the social sciences while connecting them more robustly to work in the natural sciences and humanities.
