In this feature essay, Ninna Meier reflects on the materiality of the writing – and re-writing – process in academic research. She explores the ways in which our ever-accumulating thoughts come to form layers on the material objects in which we write our notes and discusses the pleasures of co-authorship.
This essay originally appeared on LSE Review of Books and is the first in a new series examining the material cultures of academic research, reading and writing.
