What is a citizen scholar? What kind of scholarly research captures the attention of the general public and how can we optimize public engagement in it? What is the role of the digital humanities that have become so relevant in western and non-western academic contexts in recent decades? This talk introduces the notion of open social scholarship that involves creating and disseminating research and research technologies to a broad audience of specialists and active non-specialists in ways that are accessible and significant.
