Thinking Together: Creative Collaborations in the Humanities

Sylvia Miller, Duke University

Miller discusses what makes a good collaboration in the humanities, drawing on her experiences as manager of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes, program manager at Duke University's Franklin Humanities Institute, co-founder of the inter-institutional Publishing Makerspace working group, and director or coordinator of several international scholarly collaborations funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. How can faculty and institutions structure, create, and support "humanities labs"? What do humanities faculty need to have and know in order to collaborate successfully across disciplines and around themes?
