This introductory chapter first sets out the book’s purpose, which is to outline a framework for understanding and promoting collaboration across disciplines and cultures. The framework resulted from cutting-edge work in science, technology, and society (STS), history, and the psychology of science. The chapter describes the 2006 workshop on Trading Zones, Interactional Expertise, and Interdisciplinary Collaboration held at Arizona State University’s Decision Theater, from which the present book emerged. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   cross-disciplinary collaboration, framework, science, technology, society, history, psychology of science, workshop
