Writing in Company: Forms of Collaboration in Artistic Works and Scientific Knowledge, 1700-1914

Screenshot
While writing may often be thought of or portrayed as a solitary pursuit, the digital exhibition Writing in Company: Forms of Collaboration in Artistic Works and Scientific Knowledge, 1700-1914 points out that writers throughout history often collaborated in both formal and unnoticed ways, resulting in "collective creativity." These myriad forms of collaboration are explored in this exhibition which was created to accompany a physical exhibition displayed at Montreal's McGill University Library in 2014. Visitors to this exhibition will find more than fifty "examples of collaboration among writers associated with the rise of popular literature (novel and theatre), among writers and illustrators or composers, among creators and interpreters, as well as among members of a salon, an artistic movement, a religious order, an academic institution, or a scientific expedition." Readers can explore the exhibition thematically or as a whole, and each image (many of which feature works written in French) includes a brief explanatory caption in both English and French. Writing in Company was curated by graduate students Stephanie Favreau and Adina Ruiu as part of the interdisciplinary research group Interacting with Print, which studies European print culture in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
