Shark- human holistic research and Knowledge system​

(SHHRKS)

A methodological invitation to collaborate 

The lives and oceanscapes of sharks are highly threatened. The present way of creation and dissemination of knowledge is not having an effective impact on shark conservation initiatives. Consequently, in this proposal, I plant the seeds of Shark- human holistic research and Knowledge system approach (SHHRKS) a transdisciplinary, transmodal, tranceknowledge system multispecies approach in education, creation, analysis, and dissemination of shark knowledge and its application in policy. I explore the need for such an approach, the methodological considerations, and how can such an approach be beneficial. Furthermore, I propose examples of how such an approach be implemented through examples of a tentative curriculum.

 

Operational definitions:

SHHRKS:  Transdisciplinary, trans-modal, trance- Knowledge system multispecies approach in education, creation, analysis, and dissemination of shark knowledge and its application in policy.

Data: Unbiased (or closest thereof) quantitative/qualitative/ sensory information collected with the intent of creating Knowledge through the process of analyses.

I welcome scientist, researchers, to get in touch if they want to collaborate and build this methodology together

Bibliography of human shark research.

In the spirit of creating a collaborative research platform, and the deep belief that this knowledge should be available to anyone that is interested. I am crating a dynamic bibliography of literature which investigates human-shark interaction from natural sciences, social sciences and law and other fields. Considering the lack of direct resources, I am considering all literature which directly or indirectly investigating the interaction. I will be updating the list as and when I get new literature. I encourage scholars to use this resource, and contact me to update any new research.

It has been a pleasure to introduce my new human- shark research methodology I have been working on for the Blackpool and The Fylde College.
