Susan Brown, “Scaling Up Collaboration Online: Towards a Collaboratory for Research on Canadian Writing.” International Journal of Canadian Studies 48 (April 2014): 233-51.
A call to those who research writing in Canada to consider where literary research is headed, and to reflect carefully on a couple of invisible, apparently immaterial, factors in the way we do our work: infrastructure and collaboration. We need as a community to become more mindful and purposeful about the ways that emergent digital environments shape our activities. Those environments shape it directly, through the digital tools and resources we employ, and also by shaping the digital representations of culture on which our scholarly work increasingly depends.
