Most often collaboration happens fairly late in a scholar’s research and publication process, after they have completed the bulk of their research and well after the initial idea for the project. What would the work of the humanities look like if collaboration were moved upstream in the research and publication workflow, to the very headwaters of inquiry, imagination, and project conception? What new contributions could we make if we came together with designers, developers, editors, and librarians to start new projects, not merely to finish them? This talk will imagine the possibilities of such a “collaboration first” approach for the creation and dissemination of humanistic knowledge both globally and in the local context of Newport’s rich cultural heritage resources.
