IABA BRAZIL 2018 – SECRET LIVES: HIDING, REVEALING, BELONGING 

SNS Collaboration Roundtable

Room 2.06 RE III-SNS Wednesday July 11, 2018, 11:00am-12:30pm

IABA’s Students and New Scholars Network centred our second roundtable event around the notion of “Collaboration.” The discussion series took place during the 2017 regional IABA events (Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific) and now culminates at the IABA World conference in Brazil. We chose “collaboration” because we believe it is a theoretical, methodological, and political concept that has been continuously and critically driving our field, as well as our network, forward. Taking up “collaboration” from critical perspectives pertaining to scholarly, pedagogical, and institutional lives, we believe this topic will produce conversations focused on:

  • Theorizing collaboration: what it means to work collaboratively across disciplines, mediums and locations; what we define as successful or failed collaborations;
  • Collaborative methods and practices: revisiting and developing collaborative processes and practices of writing, researching, teaching, and activism, including (but not limited to) ethical protocols; collaboration as political work;
  • Collaboration and/as care: working together as care within and beyond academia;
  • Collaboration and/as inclusion: exploring ways that collaborative methods and theories can create opportunities for radical inclusion (in all senses of the word).

Each panelist offers a 3-5 minute presentation, and a 60-minute discussion follows, moderated by Liz Rodriguez and Zeinab McHeimech.

SNS Roundtable: Collaboration (2017-2018)

Each bi-annual cycle IABA SNS hosts a series of roundtable events at regional and global IABA conferences. The series invites emerging or established scholars, activists, and practitioners to engage in a key-word-based multi-disciplinary discussion. Participants share a 5-minute presentation that takes up the keyword from a theoretical, methodological, creative, pedagogic, or political perspectives.

Following the success of “Unsettle,” SNS centred our second roundtable event around the notion of “Collaboration.” The discussion series took place during the 2017 regional IABA events (Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific) and will culminate at the next IABA World conference in Brazil in 2018.
