Hailing as I originally do from the museum and library world, I have a particular interest in the more outward-facing aspects of the humanities–and in the digital humanities, the aspects of the field that might particularly be considered “public” or “open.” I’d love to get into a conversation about this stuff. Maybe we can take a look at how audiences are examined in digital projects, or talk about the degree to which digital humanities projects are (or aren’t) by their very nature forms of public scholarship. What makes a scholarly effort “public” in the first place, and is there anything particular to digital work that supports or undermines that idea? Maybe we can talk about crowdsourcing and its role in digital research and scholarship. In short, if the phrase “public humanities” catches your attention, I’d love to chat.
