Citizen Science in the (Digital) Arts and Humanities
This module will look at the variety of practices within ‘citizen science’, how you as a humanist might get started working with them, what issues you might be wary of along the way and how Research Infrastructures can potentially help you.
By the end of this section, you should be able to:
Recognise and define common approaches to incorporating citizen science into research projects in the arts and humanities
Be aware of strategies and tools for managing citizen input to research
Recognise some of the possible challenges in such projects and be equipped to manage them
The PARTHENOS project  recognised that over the past ten years, researchers, institutional leaders and policymakers have begun to speak more and more about infrastructure. As more voices join the conversation, however, it can sometimes become more difficult, rather than less, to understand what exactly research infrastructure is and does. In particular in the humanities, and the digital humanities, the term is used to cover a lot of different projects, resources and approaches.
To address this gap, the PARTHENOS cluster of humanities research infrastructure projects devised a series of training modules and resources for researchers, educators, managers, and policy makers who want to learn more about research infrastructures and the issues and methods around them.
The modules, which have been released on a rolling basis from late 2016, cover a wide range of awareness levels, requirements and topic areas within the landscape of research infrastructure.
