The ScienceHumanities was founded at Cardiff University in 2016 to investigate the present and future challenges, functions and successes of collaborative research between the humanities and the sciences. It was led by the authors: Martin Willis and James Castell from the School of English, and Keir Waddington from the School of History, Archaeology and Religion. Over the course of 2016 the ScienceHumanities initiative focused on generating new discussions and ways of thinking within and beyond Cardiff. Leading international scholars across disparate humanities disciplines were invited to give seminars and public lectures, while we attended international events to discuss the nature and role of the ScienceHumanities. We held workshops and exhibitions investigating discrete forms of collaboration between the humanities and the sciences in order to build and develop new critical interactions between different fields of inquiry. In December 2016, we held a colloquium that brought together scholars from three continents and multiple disciplines to begin to offer initial definition to the ScienceHumanities and the role that it might play in our research future. This special issue of the Journal of Literature and Science arises from that colloquium and our thinking.
