“Work In Progress” Public Humanities, Digital Humanities, and Forms of Labor, Collaboration, and Audience

1. Abstract

Drawing on experiences as a postdoctoral fellow in Digital Public Humanities and the recent and ongoing turn toward public humanities in digital humanities, this long paper reflects on the pace of digital humanities projects and the privileging of "work in progress" and their impact on nonacademic audiences and collaborators as well as practitioners in precarious or contingent academic positions.
