Collaborative interpretation is an inherent aspect of research in many disciplines but can also pose challenges. In this workshop, we invite participants to collectively explore what makes collaborative interpretation both rewarding and challenging, share our experiences in collaborative work, and brainstorm ways to develop infrastructures to support collaborative interpretation, with the high-level goal that participants can incorporate insights from the workshop into their own research and work practice. Introduction and challenges: Starting with a short introduction with short challenge papers, participants will present a 5 minute lightning talk introducing an important challenge problem they see in collaboration and their perspective on how to address it. Then all workshop participants engage in interactive breakout discussions. Collaborative activity: Participants engage in a collaborative interpretation of text from a corpus of personal diaries from 19th century Ottoman Iraq. The diaries are publicly available at, but we will provide additional guidance, materials, and a platform to engage in collective interpretation, with flexibility to shape the interpretive process based on workshop participants’ own research approaches. Additional registration fee applies.
