Abstract :
[en] In this chapter we examine the critical possibilities of collaborative writing, as multiple layers of <br />voices intertwine to produce and understand collaborative authorship. We seek to challenge the <br />politics and epistemological assumptions of the do-your-own-work mentality pervasive throughout education. Through a theoretical, methodological and ethnographically thick exploration of collaboratively produced text, we offer a different paradigm for understanding and producing knowledge. Cowriting is examined as an unfolding, polyvocal, and necessarily <br />multifaceted journey toward a new critical pedagogy of working “with.”
