#CitizenScience is cool, and I'm curious to see if there's such a thing for outside of the sciences.

Are any of you familiar with any groups that support #CitizenScholars, or scholarly work and conduct among persons outside of #academia?

@bthall There's some pretty incredible historians (with and without university backgrounds) in the SCA - mainly focused on histories of materials, objects or processes, but sometimes outside of that too.

And a lot of community teaching goes on in all sorts of areas, often out of sheer necessity - the skills in demand among members often aren't taught by any formal institutions, so the community has to teach one another.
