Crowdsourcing in the Digital Humanities [Talk]

Crowdsourcing is becoming more and more common in the digital humanities. Here is a sampling of projects which currently include crowdsourcing features:

I would be interested in a discussion of how crowdsourcing can be used in digital humanities projects. Topics of discussion could include:

  • How to¬† implement crowdsourcing
  • Successes / Failures
  • Strengths / Weaknesses
  • Issues / Barriers

See also the proposal for a “play” crowdsourcing session.

  1. This sounds fantastic to me, and could relate to a question I’m formulating. I’ve been thinking about non-crowdsourced digital archives, some of which are my favorites. Their successes sometimes include unity and quality, but their quality may also be at the expense of being narrow. This is a session I’d love to participate in.
