Academic Crowdsourcing in the Humanities : Crowds, Communities and Co-production Paperback / softback
by Mark (Senior Lecturer, Department of Digital Humanities, King's College, London, UK) Hedges, Stuart (Kings College, London, UK) Dunn
Part of the Chandos Information Professional Series series
Academic Crowdsourcing in the Humanities lays the foundations for a theoretical framework to understand the value of crowdsourcing, an avenue that is increasingly becoming important to academia as the web transforms collaboration and communication and blurs institutional and professional boundaries.
Crowdsourcing projects in the humanities have, for the most part, focused on the generation or enhancement of content in a variety of ways, leveraging the rich resources of knowledge, creativity, effort and interest among the public to contribute to academic discourse.
This book explores methodologies, tactics and the "citizen science" involved.
