In this chapter we advance discussions of the use of a sensory ethnography approach in interdisciplinary research. One of the frequent issues in interdisciplinary projects is the lack of coherence between the theories and concepts used to understand the worlds that we work in and the ways in which knowledge is produced across different disciplines. At the same time, scholars and researchers from these disciplines nevertheless need to find ways in which to work together and indeed create relationships between their research findings. In this chapter, we interrogate this question through focusing in on how interdisciplinary connections might be achieved.
