Collaboration: how to work with others without losing your friends or your mind

Facilitator: David Cook-Martin


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 an Associate Professor of Sociology at Grinnell College and director of its Center for International Studies. His work as a political sociologist focuses on understanding migration, race, ethnicity, law, and citizenship in an international field of power. He is author of The Scramble for Citizens: Dual Nationality and State Competition for Immigrants (Stanford University Press 2013), and co-author with David FitzGerald of Culling the Masses: The Democratic Origins of Racist Immigration Policy in the Americas (Harvard University Press 2014). He has published articles and chapters on transnational religious networks, ethnic return migration, and Latin American migrations to Europe, and is a member of the Scholar’s Strategy Network. David has collaborated with colleagues on research grants and writing projects at each stage of his career, learning a thing or two about the good, the bad, and the ugly of shared ventures. Mostly the good!
