Department - De Moor, Tine Tine De Moor (PhD; Ghent, Antwerp, and London) is currently associate professor at the department for social and economic history of Utrecht University. Through an interdisciplinary approach for the study of the long-term evolution of rural commons, De Moor has been able to revise the historical basis of the widely debated metaphor of the Tragedy of the Commons, as launched in 1968 by G. Hardin. Whereas from a modern-day perspective the flaws in Hardin’s theory have been well-documented, the historical deficiencies in his theory were hardly ever studied.

I am using this temporary ‘blog’ site alongside my permanent university web presence (at http://www.ncl.ac.uk/gps/staff/profile/helen.jarvis), because it allows me to keep a rolling-record of several interrelated research projects (see below). Since July 2008 I have visited a large number of intentional communities; many of them cohousing schemes, some of them eco-villages, some identified primarily as housing cooperatives, and a smaller number of communes. Small-scale ethnographic studies have been conducted in both urban and accessible rural community settings; in the UK, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, and the USA (states of Washington, Oregon and Virginia).

I’m in the middle of taking a course on Virtual Learning Environments (syllabus here), and reading a few chapters from Adaptive Software Development by Highsmith. It approaches the team-building and collaboration process from the perspective of complex adaptive systems theory, and contains some interesting insights in evolutionary development and creating environments where emergence can occur. I’ve created a summary of a chapter that I’d like to share, as I think it can be valuable for many of us, and specifically for the community of practitioners around the junto concept. Collaboration is an act of shared creation or discovery. (schrage89) Guidelines for Group Collaboration and Emergence
