CAS SEE Seminars with Guests: Fanny Frick-Trzebitzky, Dženeta Hodžić and Linda Söller

Getting down to the nitty-gritty or when Socio-Hydrology meets Cultural Anthropology: Interdisciplinary groundwater research in Croatia

On Thursday, December 2nd at 12pm CET, we are going to host CAS SEE Weekly Seminar with Fanny Frick-Trzebitzky, Dženeta Hodžić and Linda Söller, members of a research group of the project ‘regulate’, presented by Sarah Czerny and Sanja Bojanić.


Studying sustainability issues involves the integration of multiple perspectives to cover questions pertaining to both social and natural sciences respectively. The benefits of bringing together different disciplines to address complex dynamics come alongside conceptual and practical challenges in interdisciplinary research. Three researchers from the junior research group “regulate – Regulation of groundwater in telecoupled social-ecological systems” will give insights into their interdisciplinary collaboration when studying groundwater dynamics, as they will do so in Rijeka and Krk next year. We will discuss the following questions as exemplary in interdisciplinary research while also exploring the added value of this research mode:
How to deal with different research approaches?
How to coordinate different research/fieldwork schedules?
How to understand each other’s “disciplinary” language?

The interactive talk will address these practical and epistemic challenges as well as methodological opportunities that emerge when Cultural Anthropology and Socio-Hydrology come together in such a research endeavour.
