The Collaborative History Model offers a new generic citizen science model within the humanities engaging citizens in the production and analysis of qualitative data. The model consists of three parts: 1. An elaborate co-designed learning module. 2. Data collection. 3. Research and digital processing of the data in a digital archive. During the autumn of 2021, we ran a test pilot with 14 high school classes (13 teachers and approximately 400 high school students). The pilot demonstrated the potential for activating and engaging students in an academic topic, improving their scientific literacy, and collecting valuable new data for research. The 131 life-story interviews will allow for researchers to make significant scientific contribution on an often-overlooked perspective, namely the lived experiences of ‘ordinary’ people.
