Advancing research is as much about pushing the boundaries of what our discipline is and whom we collaborate with as it is about methods and practices. This theme explores what the research practice of the future could look like. How does research connect with data science, market research, and other practices centered on learning about people? What lessons can we learn from adjacent fields? And how do we grow as researchers and evolve our work through difficult new terrain, like trauma informed understanding, non-researchers conducting research, and the need to embrace fully global views?
