Modes and Bounds of Collaboration

Seminar, in English, online, 13 July 2023, 2pm to 4pm (EST)

Since 2006, the Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative has engaged in numerous shared projects from collected volumes and joint authorship to peer review workshopping and website publishing, alongside conferences, symposia, and public presentations. Operated as a self-funded, non-profit corporation, Aggregate continues to evolve its means and outputs of production within the practical, intellectual, and institutional constraints of collaborative work. This seminar offers younger scholars reflections by several Aggregate directors upon the group’s evolving collaborative efforts in the contexts of collective work, recent architectural history, and the higher education and publishing industries.

This event is free and open to the public. To register, click here.
