Abstract: Crowdsourcing is vital in facilitating the sustainable development goals of digital humanities projects. In this talk, I will start with a literature review on cultural heritage crowdsourcing. A preliminary conceptual framework will be presented to illustrate the intellectual development of this field. Later, I will report two empirical investigations to discuss the critical issues regarding the sustainability of cultural heritage crowdsourcing projects. The first study will use the machine learning approach to explore imbalanced volunteer engagement in a well-known project. The second study will use the fsQCA approach to examine the configuration effects affecting the sustainability of cultural heritage crowdsourcing projects.
