What does it take to structure collaboration so that each contribution is made and valued with equal care and consideration? Many scholars, especially in the humanities are trained to teach and write in isolation. Others may learn to write multiple-author articles within a particular field, but may not be adept at working across disciplines. How do we unlearn these habits to co-teach or co-write effectively? Doing so can enable scholars to build bridges between STEM and the humanities, and to bring our siloes into conversation. Participants will leave this workshop with ideas for collaborative writing and team-teaching as well as resources and models for collegial, equitable collaboration.

This workshop will showcase a few ongoing collaborations in CUNY classrooms and on paper, and task participants with collaboratively gathering relevant resources to publish on the HASTAC website for others to use and learn from. The first half of the workshop will include lightning talks by CUNY collaborators and a Q&A with the audience. In the second half of the workshop, we will break into smaller groups to co-write blog posts that share effective strategies and methods for co-teaching and co-writing with the public as well as tips catered to the unique needs of graduate students.
