Walking the Talk: Editing Wikipedia with Purpose
MetadataShow full item record
Started nineteen years ago Wikipedia is one of the most visited websites on the Internet, but its popularity is not without issue. Editors are predominantly males from the global north which has led to documented systemic bias and a chronic underrepresentation of pages related to equity seeking communities. Drawing on her experience editing Wikipedia through an archival lens, this talk challenges the assumption that anyone being able to edit Wikipedia makes it a dubious information resource by positioning the site’s openness as an opportunity to put stated commitments to equity, inclusion, diversity and reconciliation into action through purposeful editing.
