Work at Utrecht Data School and Datafied Society is most often a team effort. Our practices require collaboration between team members with different backgrounds and expertise. However, incentives for academic excellence in the humanities are almost exclusively tailored to reward individual performance of singular scholars. While this system has its merits, it certainly has limits. Our research on datafication taught us that as a team we can achieve together what none of us could have done alone. A post on teamwork, blurring disciplines and fading boundaries between academia and societal sectors.
