Collaborative approaches once common primarily in the natural sciences are now more frequent in the humanities and social sciences. Working with others to produce scholarship or carry out a project can be a highly rewarding experience or the bane of your existence.

How to assess the prospects for a successful collaboration? How do we navigate the potentially treacherous and emotionally wearing prospects of collaborations with colleagues higher or lower than us on the academic food chain? In this workshop, we will identify features of a successful collaboration, a decision-making flow, and strategies to triage problematic partnerships.

David Cook-Martin, PhD, is Associate Professor of Sociology at Grinnell College. His scholarship focuses on race, ethnicity, law and citizenship. He is the author of The Scramble for Citizens: Dual Nationality and the Competition for Immigrants (forthcoming, Stanford University Press). David is currently working on a project that examine ethnic racial exclusions in immigration and nationality policies in the Americas since 1850. His life is otherwise about getting two kids wherever they need to go and finding time to hang out with their mother.
