Social Knowledge Creation in the Humanities: Volume 2


Social Knowledge Creation in the Humanities is an anthology that seeks to address the relationship between social media, open access publishing, collaboration, and crowdsourcing in the humanities. The speed, ubiquity, and diversity of online systems are creating new cultures of knowledge creation. Now is the time to articulate how the social, institutional, and cultural changes within the academy are reshaping knowledge creation and scholarly communication. We are seeking article length contributions for the second volume of Social Knowledge Creation in the Humanities. We seek articles that capture disciplinary, institutional, and technological changes within the humanities. Contributors are encouraged to address, but are not limited to, the following questions:

How are questions of identity, community, and belonging articulated in the way we conduct digital research projects? How have social technologies and platforms shaped scholarly collaboration and scholarly publishing? How has your digital project been shaped by new collaborative approaches? How has social media shaped new pedagogies and allowed for student participation in research? How does social media allow for your project to reach new participants and stakeholders? How has your means of scholarly communication been shaped and augmented by social media? How have institutions and scholars measured scholarly excellence?
