Romantic Circles as Online Community

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Lisa Spiro of the Digital Scholarship in the Humanities blog recently cited Romantic Circles as an exemplary "online community" for its long-standing devotion to diverse scholarly pursuits in a digital environment.  Her post addresses the relative dearth of collaborative work in the humanities as compared to the sciences but also points to the digital humanities as a rich source of  collaborative work, of which Romantic Circles is just one example.  Spiro's post is extensive and collects concrete examples of collaborative digital humanities projects--from crowdsourcing to content aggregation to gaming.
