Making a Contribution in the Humanities

Presentationen handlar om hur forskningsprojekt inom humaniora motiveras. På grund av standardiserade tendenser i forskningsfinansieringen mot format som är anpassade för ämnen inom naturvetenskap, teknik, och medicin (STEM), har det funnits oro för att humaniora (och humanistiska samhällsvetenskaper) marginaliseras.

Studien tar avstamp i de motiveringar som ges i humanistiska forskningsansökningar till RJ. Resultaten stöder tidigare observationer att humaniora skiljer sig från de övriga vetenskaperna, men visar också på hur dessa discipliner följer samma struktur i problemställning som inom STEM-fälten. En bättre förståelse för hur humanistiska forskare motiverar sina bidragsansökningar kan ge en inblick i förändringar inom dessa disciplinera.
