The story of the Social Text collective begins with the desire to establish a counterpoint to possessive individualism, creating a means for valuing collaborative engagement against the singular authorship of genius; later it would come to stand against the deadening metric of disciplinary accountability as well. The editorial collective foments a deliberative process that aims to set its own context and hence to make something generative of its internal disciplinary difference.
