Always walk alone? Historians and Collaborations

Why do historians like to write alone? In this blog article, Camilo Erlichman reflects on the reluctance of historians to engage in collaborative forms of writing, tracing the reasons to the development of the discipline in the 19th century. In doing so, he argues that while mono-authorship will remain a key pillar of the discipline, historians need to embrace more emphatically collective forms of writing: not to succumb to the logics of marketisation, but to diversify their sources and widen their intellectual horizons.
