Experimenting with Collaboration
This chapter centers on Limn, a scholarly magazine that focuses on tensions arising at the intersection of politics, expertise, and collective life. It describes Limn as an experiment in scholarly publishing in the interpretive human sciences that aims to make possible new kinds of communication and collective work. It also mentions Martin Høyem, who custom designed Limn with a range of imagery and graphic material related to the contributions, including a featured graphic that links diverse contributions in a common conceptual problem-space. The chapter discusses Limn as a vehicle for exploring new forms of collaboration in the interpretive human sciences. It recounts the changing field of American anthropology during the 1990s and 2000s in which discipline encouraged individualized work and valorized virtuosic interpretation and writing, with little space for collaborative inquiry.
