This British Academy/Leverhulme project workshop investigates collaborations between members of colleges, academies, and universities. How do letter exchanges and personal papers help to describe individual collaborations? Do they define types of teacher-student relations, collegiate rivalries or give hints about the exchange of books, objects and common interests? Was there a gender barrier, and was it overcome?
