Collaborative Creativity : Socio-cultural Accounts Paperback / softback

Edited by Dorothy Miell, Karen Littleton

Paperback / softback


The contributors to this volume adopt a socio-cultural approach to understanding collaborative creativity across a wide range of domains such as music composition, business, school-based creative writing and art, fashion design, theatre production and web-based academic collaborations.

Central to the socio-cultural approach to creativity is the recognition that it is a fundamentally social process.

It thus follows that, if we are to understand and characterise human creativity, we need to examine the cultural, institutional and interpersonal contexts that support and sustain such activity.

We also need to understand how cultural tools and technologies resource collaborative creativity.

The volume offers a distinctive and valuable contribution to this growing field of scholarship by presenting new empirical findings, reviews and critiques of existing literature together with suggestions for how this field should develop.
