Common Ground: Feminist Collaboration in the Academy
Elizabeth G. Peck, JoAnna Stephens Mink
SUNY Press, Jan 1, 1998 - Social Science - 298 pages
Placed within the context of the academic environment, this multi-focused book identifies students as active contributors and learners; faculty as researchers, teachers, and learners; and administrators as a synthesis of all three modes of collaboration. While focusing on the mutuality of educational enterprises, Common Ground raises provocative questions about the dynamics of gender and cooperation at various levels of academia. It reveals the transformative power of collaboration by challenging traditional notions of single authorship and beliefs about knowledge as individually owned and acquired. By offering different perspectives on feminism and collaboration, this book establishes the basis for re-thinking Romantic notions about creativity, re-conceptualizing conventional ideas regarding competition, and re-reading traditional hierarchies and authoritarian relationships.
