Show Notes


Quotes from this episode:

“This field is still relatively young in academic terms...so the norms of this complex systems community haven’t solidified as much. Whereas some older disciplines have fallen into a certain set of norms that were then embedded in an older cultural context.” — Sarah Shugars
