I would be very grateful for everyone's help in publicizing a new website
by posting the following announcement to any lists you think
appropriate. Thanks so much! Andrea
Announcing a New Website on Collaboration
Readers are invited to visit--and contribute to--a new web site designed to
encourage collaborative writing and research in higher education. The URL
for the web site, Collaborate!, is http://www.stanford.edu/group/collaborate/.
Collaborate! was developed by Corinne Arraez, Lisa Ede, and Andrea
Lunsford in conjunction with MLA President Linda Hutcheon's call for
"alternatives to the adversarial academy" (Presidential Forum, 2000
MLA). The site provides a clearinghouse of information on and productive
models of collaboration in the humanities and on best practices for
institutional change. The models provided on the site, as well as the
bibliography and links to related sites, provide a starting point for those
interested in collaborative research and writing.
Web sites are always works in progress, but this is particularly true for
Collaborate! Institutional change comes slowly--if it comes at all--so the
developers of Collaborate! encourage all those interested in collaborative
writing and research to work together to develop the kind of synergistic
collaboration that can enable such change. For information on how
materials can be added to Collaborate!, click on the "how to contribute'
icon at the bottom of each page.
