Seminar

Inaugural Discussion of the Social Science and Humanities of IPE Journal Club

Monday, August 22, 2022, 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

The AIHC-National Center Social Science and Humanities of IPE Journal Club will "kick off" at this year's Summit.  In 2021, colleagues attending Nexus Summit had a robust conversation about the social sciences of IPE and their interest in cultivating scholarly dialogue.  The goal of this Journal Club is to enhance awareness of theories, concepts, and methodologies to advance the science of interprofessionalism while fostering a scholarly network among social scientists interested in contributing to the field. 

The inaugural Journal Club discussion will explore 3 articles related to the (frequently cited) "Contact Hypothesis". In addition to the dialogue, attendees will share ideas about how best to collaboratively design the Journal Club so that it is an engaging and sustainable initiative into the future.

Attendees wishing to attend this session are invited to review the five discussion articles.
