Collaboration as Positioning -- 2013 ACLA Conference, Toronto

Sunday, October 21, 2012 - 6:45am
American Comparative Literature Association

"Collaboration as Positioning"

Abstract Deadline: 15 November, 2012
Conference Date: April 4-7, 2013

Requiring the production and negotiation of one's position in relation to others, collaboration can be understood as a process both of mapping a whole and of locating oneself within it. Collaborations arise from the hope that multiple perspectives can generate new positions on problems, both artistic and political. This seminar welcomes papers on historical and contemporary methodologies of creative collaboration, considered as a strategy of positioning. How does collaboration affect our understanding of the relationship between community and singularity, between the private and the public?
