Professor Siemens’ talk explores emerging and evolving possibilities for academic work in a public context mediated by new technologies and the approaches they facilitate, drawing on the foundational and conceptual impulses of the digital humanities and those of open social scholarship.

Core examples are drawn from experience with A Social Edition of the Devonshire Manuscript (BL Add 17492), its publication of record being on the public-facing Wikibooks platform, with academic-oriented publication in book form by Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies (2015). Discussion considers ways to situate academic work for engagement by academic specialists and interested members of the public, and to engage an audience that may be drawn to that work consisting of members of the public and academic specialists.
