Here’s a great, insightful post on the definition and boundaries of scholarship in the Digital Age that both Anne Geller and I have already tweeted this snowy morning.. To summarize: scholarship has three features: it’s public, evaluated, and used to develop further work. Worth reading and thinking about!

When does anything—service, teaching, editing, mentoring, coding—become scholarship?
My answer is simply this: a creative or intellectual act becomes scholarship when it is public and circulates in a community of peers that evaluates and builds upon it.
