Since we are producing scientific knowledge on the production of scientific knowledge, we have found it useful to problematise our own knowledge practices, which we have come to imagine as “disciplined collaboration.” This is different to “interdisciplinary collaboration,” which typically aims to bring together two or more disciplines to shed light on a problem. In our case, while we both hail from disciplines, and these strongly orientate our research, we are trained in several disciplines that share as much as differentiates them. Moreover, we have also worked in varied practice settings including medicine, public health policy and diplomacy. Our collaboration, then, is less about combining discrete disciplines than it is managing – in disciplined ways – the similarities and productive tensions our respective scientific sensibilities, professional expertise and experiences entail. Our disciplined collaboration enhances our own scientific knowledge-making efforts and, we believe, enables new knowledge about the conditions of knowledge today.
