Flipping the academic conference, or how we wrote a peer-reviewed journal article in a day.

Baron, Ilan Zvi and Havercroft, Jonathan and Kamola, Isaac and Koomen, Jonneke and Pritchard, Alex (2020) 'Flipping the academic conference, or how we wrote a peer-reviewed journal article in a day.', Alternatives., 45 (1). pp. 3-19.


Is it possible to write a publishable, peer-reviewed academic paper in a day? We attempted this task in 2016, motivated by a desire to find new ways of doing academic work in the face of our growing sense of alienation within the neoliberal academy. This article provides our analysis of academic alienation and an auto-ethnography of our experiment. We discuss four lessons learned: (1) knowledge as a social relation, (2) time and the academy, (3) gender and collaborative writing, and (4) the contradictions and possibilities of anarchy and authorship. We also offer practical advice for scholars looking to engage in similar collaborations.
