This area is for the Social Network of the Novel project. This project is an experiment in citizen science. The idea is to create an application that allows participants to read a passage and tag the characters, settings, and interactions taking place. These would then update a social network graph dynamically.

Design Examples for Crowdsourcing in the Humanities

Most of the projects in the humanities are focused on transcription.

Crowdsourcing Software Projects

The Prism project is particularly interesting because it focuses on tagging using a highlighter affordance, instead of transcription which is the most common use case for most of these tools.
