Barriers to Diversity in Wikipedia: The Importance of the Worlds We Don’t Know About

We've seen monolithic narratives in action: they can form parties, they can create countries. However, in a world collapsing from climate change and social inequalities, we need to do better thanthat. We need to embrace diversity, and in order to care, we ought to learn. Wikipedia, as one of the most visited websites in the world, could be a good place to start. The bad news is it is notquite there yet. The good news is we can do something about it. In this talk, UVic's Honorary Resident Wikipedian, Silvia Gutiérrez De la Torre, will address barriers to diversity in Wikipedia. Thispublic lecture is sponsored by UVic Libraries and the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab.
