Citizen Humanities Comes of Age: Crowdsourcing for the Humanities in the 21st Century

Anatomy Lecture Theatre, kings College London, 9 September 2015

Research in the humanities was once the preserve of an academic and professional elite, conducted in universities, libraries, museums and archives, with clear criteria for belonging to the communities undertaking it.

This collaborative and interdisciplinary symposium, organised jointly by King’s College London’s Department of Digital Humanities (DDH) and Stanford University’s Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), seeks to explore the ways in which humanities and cultural heritage research is enriched through scholarly crowdsourcing.
