Courtauld Books Online launch new open-access publications

Courtauld Books Online has recently made available two new publications to add to its rapidly-expanding catalogue of open-access scholarly works, available freely to all online. The first is Collaboration and its (Dis)Contents: Art, Architecture, and Photography since 1950, based on the research project of Meredith A. Brown when she worked as Mellon postdoctoral fellow at the Research Forum, which she has edited with Michelle Millar Fisher. The second, Gothic Ivory Sculpture: Content and Context, edited by Catherine Yvard, serves as the transactions of a conference held jointly between The Courtauld and the British Museum in 2014, and continues the digital potential of the Gothic Ivories Project.
Both of these publications are free to download and share, and are encouraged for use in teaching.
This volume stems from The Courtauld Research Forum’s 2013 flagship research initiative, led by Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow Meredith A. Brown, which brought together a group of early career scholars based in London and New York who spent the year engaged in transatlantic conversations about collaboration and its influence on the histories of modern and contemporary art, architecture, and photography. The resulting collaboratively written essays and artists’ projects are timely contributions to the growing art historical debates around collaboration and collectivity and their relationship to modernism, feminism, Marxism, and contemporary practice. Collaboration and its (Dis)Contents explores not only what constitutes collaboration in recent art globally but also opens up possibilities created by collaborative historical and artistic research in a field that historically has privileged the traditional single-author text.
