To collaborate: definitions from the OED:

1) To work in conjunction with another or others, to co-operate; esp. in a literary or artistic production, or the like.

2)  To co-operate traitorously with the enemy.

I love those double meanings. Collaboration as both productive and destructive.

Recently Professor Aimee Morrison co-wrote with her colleagues at Hook & Eye an article for University Affairs about collaboration in the Humanities. Please read the article here. It’s short!

What are your thoughts about collaborative work?

I do a lot of collaborative research and writing, and I love it.  What about you? What is your experience of working in teams or groups to produce collaborative projects? Has it been positive or not? Alumni readers, I’m also looking at you. 🙂
