Fri Nov 10 13:19:50 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

I’m going to leave aside my somewhat knee-jerk desire to point out that few have complained about the ways that projects with “science” limit their address.

Fri Nov 10 13:19:58 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

Because there’s a real point here: naming the humanities limits our reach. And to a significant extent, that’s purposeful.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:05 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

The humanities have long been underserved by digital infrastructure projects. Scientists have load of open science networks. Social scientists have had SSRN.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:12 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

And as Humanities Commons began with the MLA, and MLA Commons, it seemed only natural that we should serve our own constituency first.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:20 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

But: First. Platforming outward from MLA Commons to Humanities Commons has been one step in a process. And more steps are to come.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:28 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

It’s hard to develop community by simply throwing open the doors. Much as I resist the Facebook analogy, it’s worth considering how the platform grew.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:35 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

First, they established internally-focused networks within individual institutions, enabling members to connect with people they already knew.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:42 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

Then they created means of connecting across those networks. And only once there was a critical mass of participation did they open the doors to everyone.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:49 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

One of the mistakes that’s been made repeatedly in open scholarly communication projects has been the attempt to create the bucket of everything.

Fri Nov 10 13:20:55 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

Sometimes that bucket has been journal-shaped, and sometimes it’s been social network shaped. But they all face the same challenge:

Fri Nov 10 13:21:02 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

Getting individual scholars who identify with their field or subfield and who want to speak with their colleagues to recognize themselves in “everybody.”

Fri Nov 10 13:21:08 +0000 2017

Replying to @kfitz

So @humcommons has begun with communities of practice — but they’re just a place to start.

We welcome the involvement of new communities of practice, and we look forward to growing the network in organic, collaborative ways.

I don’t think I’d say that. Maximal inclusiveness remains an important goal. But it’s important to know that what counts as “maximal” at any given moment is relative to what’s possible, and to have a clear sense of the necessary steps to get there.
