Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/researchexchange/famouscollaborators
At The Wolfson Research Exchange and The PG Hub we believe that collaboration lies at the heart of human achievement. You need only look around you at the buildings and cities we build to live in or the vehicles we move around in; at the great works of fiction in translation and the epic collaboration that goes into masterpieces of film and theatre; at rocket science, brain surgery, the London Underground, CERN and Warwick University; all the products of massive collaboration.
But we’re looking for inspiration on a more personal level and so we’re asking you to name three of your favourite collaborators that can be linked in some way. Whether you’re a fan of Paul Erdös or Kevin Bacon, Marie and Pierre Curie or Alfred Hitchcock and Alma Reville, Wings or Cream, we want you to find a link between your favourite collaborators and let us know about them.
For example, you could choose:
- · Marcel Duchamp, George Perec and poet mathematician Jacques Roubaud who were all members of the OuLiPo.
- · Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Barack Obama are not only all American Presidents but they’re also Nobel Peace Prize laureates (Jimmy Carter is also in this group).
- · Carl Gustav Jung, William S Burroughs and Albert Einstein are all on the cover of The Beatles Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
To enter simply use the hashtag #FamousCollaborators, message us on Facebook or comment on this blog post! Be creative with your choices and you could be in with a chance of winning one of our £20 theatre vouchers suitable for use in Warwick Arts Centre (for more details and to see entry conditions visit: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/researchexchange/famouscollaborators).
So get thinking and let us know your 3 #FamousCollaborators!
Mine are Alvin, Simon and Theodore Chipmunk, obviously.
