The Rewriting Wikipedia Project

Working Group Chairs: Roopika Risam and Adeline Koh

rewritewikipedia

The Rewriting Wikipedia Project is a working group within GO:DH that works in conjunction with the Postcolonial Digital Humanities (#dhpoco) movement to increase the number of and improve existing entries on marginalized peoples and cultures. The Rewriting Wikipedia Project argues that editing Wikipedia is one of the most important projects for global activists because Wikipedia is a commonly referenced source of information riddled with incomplete or missing entries on people from marginalized groups. Yet, anyone can edit Wikipedia, so this openness represents tremendous opportunity to help shape global forms of knowledge.

As part of the Rewriting Wikipedia Project, we will be hosting the Global Women Write-In (#GWWI)virtually on April 26, 2013 from 1-3pm EST.

Find out more about the Global Women Write-In (#GWWI) here.

How to Create a Working Group

Perhaps you have noticed that GO::DH has several working groups or perhaps you have not yet explored this part of our site. Whether you already belong to a working group or whether you are thinking of creating one, here are some things you should know about them.

A working group is a group of individuals with a common task or interest and who would like to work with others sharing the same concerns.

You might already know that you want to start a working group or you might be thinking that it would be good to have a place to discuss a particular subject. If you have been wondering about this, if you have had discussions in the GO::DH mailing list, if you think that others are also interested, you could start your own working group.

GO::DH provides working groups with a space for a webpage, a mailing list pertaining to the group and guidance when you need it.

If you decide to create a working group, you must have a group coordinator, a page in GO::DH outlining the interest(s) of the group and the coordinator must report the group’s progress to the GO::DH  executive once a month.

If you think that you want to do this, send us a message and we will help you get things started.

Translation Commons

The Translation Commons is a new GO::DH working
group that aims to encourage multilingual collaboration.

If you see something on the GO::DH website that you’d like to translate, you can fill out the contact form on the working group page and check the box to register as a translator or translation team. Feel free to translate as much or as little as you’d like!

THATCampCaribe

The THATCampCaribe series brings the unconference model to the Caribbean region, and is part of our efforts to deepen our collaboration with its scholars and practitioners.

THATCamp Caribe 1 took place at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez in 2012. To learn more about that event you can visit the website for the unconference.

THATCamp Caribe 2 took place in Casa de las Americas in Havana, Cuba in 2013. To learn more you can visit the website for this unconference here.

We are now in the early stages of planning our third iteration for 2015 as a collaboration with Create Caribbean, Inc. in Dominica. Stay tuned for more!

Around DH in 80 Days

[UPDATE: We are happy to announce that the Around DH in 80 Days project launched on June 21. For the next 80 days we delivered on our promise to take you to different parts of the globe every day to visit a digital humanities project or team. We hope you enjoyed the journey, but more importantly, we hope you can use our project in the classroom and beyond.]

It is my pleasure to introduce to you one of our first pilot projects at GO::DH, Around DH in 80 Days!

AroundDH hopes to be a fun way to introduce the work of colleagues around the world to those who are just starting out. Everyday for 80 days we will visit a group or projects across the globe. An editorial board will select a total of 80 groups or projects out of master list created by volunteers like you. Groups in the list will be approached to describe themselves and highlight their work in 200 words or less. We will do our best to bring attention to digital scholarship outside of Canada, Europe, the US and Japan. In that sense, we are departing from a broad and inclusive vision of DH. Besides the audience of new comers, the global scope of the tour should also attract some of the more seasoned DH’ers. The greatest challenge of the editorial board is to balance the geographical margins with the greatest-hits of the northern mainstream. The greatest hope of the project is to paint enough of a broad picture of digital humanities to redefine it in the process. Thus, AroundDH can be read not only as a tour of the globe, but also as a dance around the periphery of DH.

The project began as an email experiment. One email was sent daily from my outbox to all the librarians in the H&H division at Columbia with the subject “The DH Daily.” Everyday, our librarians, who are in the middle of a 2-year professional development program to become the consultation arm of our Digital Humanities Center at Columbia, would visit a different DH center or project. Others outside of Columbia heard about the experiment and wanted to be included in the email list. The appeal was the small dosages. Like the librarians, the rise of DH across the land has brought crowds of DH-curious academic professionals and students to our doors asking, where do I begin?’ At the same time that the emails were going out, I was slowly but surely becoming part of the conversations around Global Outlook DH. There we were trying to discover as much as we could about the world outside the fields of vision of the member-nations of the ADHO. Eventually these two sets of concerns blend into one, and thus was born the idea for Around DH in 80 days.

The project is currently being developed by Ryan Cordell’s Doing Digital Humanities graduate class (#s13dh). You are still welcome to contribute to our global list. After Ryan’s class develops the first stage of the project, the project will be passed around the world for refinement and translation. Around DH indeed!

If you or your team would like to volunteer to translate the project once it’s ready, and/or become part of the editorial board that makes the final decisions for inclusion, please send me a line.

The working group is still in flux. Current partners include:

  • Ryan Cordell and his wonderful graduate class.
  • The growing number of contributors to our master list.

About

(Polska | Русский)


Global Outlook::Digital Humanities (GO::DH)  aims to help break down barriers that hinder communication and collaboration among researchers and students of the Digital Arts, Humanities, and Cultural Heritage sectors in high, mid, and low-income economies. As noted by Domenico Fiormonte, the history of humanities computing is hybrid, marginal, and peripheral, with innovation at the margins, rather than the center. The perspectives of the Global South are vital for shaping the future of digital humanities.

Participants come from all over the world, and we all recognize that excellent work is being done around the world. Students, researchers, and institutions in all geographic regions and types of economies have much to contribute to the development of digitally enabled work in the arts, humanities, and cultural heritage sector. GO::DH is not an aid or an outreach programme. What GO::DH does instead is leverage the complementary strengths, interests, abilities and experiences of participants through special projects and events, profile and publicity activity, and by encouraging collaboration among individual projects, institutions, and researchers.

Its core activities are:

  • Discovery: raising the visibility of digital work in the Arts, Humanities, and Cultural Heritage sectors around the world through projects like Around DH in 80 Days.
  • Community-Building: fostering collaboration and cooperation across regions and economies through its mailing list
  • Research: coordinating research on and in support of the use of technology in Arts, Humanities, and Cultural Heritage sectors across the globe.
  • Dissemination: by publishing and translating research through its series of articles in Digital Studies/ Le champ numérique and other venues.
  • Advocacy: advocating for a global perspective on digital humanities work in  local, national, and international contexts

By sharing expertise, resources, experiences, and problems, we all become better practitioners of our common discipline.

Global Outlook::Digital Humanities (GO::DH) is a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). The GO::DH executive board is exploring the possibility of full membership in ADHO as a constituent organization, which would give GO::DH the ability to better represent the interests of global DH scholars in ADHO governance.

GO::DH aims to be a safe space for individuals of any race, religion, ethnicity, language, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, physical or cognitive ability. We stand for the values of diversity, inclusion, justice, and equality.

O nas

Celem organizacji Global Outlook :: Digital Humanities [Globalna Perspektywa :: Humanistyka Cyfrowa] (GO :: DH) jest pomoc w przełamywaniu barier utrudniających komunikację i współpracę w obszarze sztuki cyfrowej, humanistyki cyfrowej i dziedzictwa kulturowego między naukowcami i studentami pochodzącymi z krajów o różnym poziomie rozwoju gospodarczego – o wysokich, średnich i niskich dochodach. Jak twierdzi Domenico Fiormante, historia humanistyki cyfrowej jest hybrydowa, marginalna i peryferyjna, jej innowacje pochodzą raczej z peryferii niż z centrum. Perspektywa globalnego Południa jest kluczowa dla kształtowania przyszłości humanistyki cyfrowej.

Członkowie i członkinie organizacji pochodzą z całego świata. Jesteśmy przekonani, że znakomite badania prowadzone są na całym świecie. Studenci, naukowcy i instytucje ze wszystkich obszarów geograficznych i krajów o różnym rozwoju pod względem gospodarczym, wiele wnoszą do badań z użyciem cyfrowych narzędzi w obszarze sztuki, humanistyki i dziedzictwa kulturowego.

GO::DH nie jest programem pomocowym. Zamiast tego GO::DH oferuje łączenie mocnych i wzajemnie się uzupełniających stron, zainteresowań, umiejętności i doświadczeń uczestników w różnorakich projektach i wydarzeniach, poprzez działalność promocyjną i informacyjną, a także poprzez wspieranie współpracy w projektach indywidualnych, w instytucjach i między poszczególnymi badaczami. Nasza główna działalność to:

  • Odkrycia: zwiększenie wyeksponowania badań cyfrowych w obszarze sztuki, humanistyki i dziedzictwa kulturowego na całym świecie poprzez projekty takie, jak Around DH in 80 Days (W 80 dni dookoła Humanistyki Cyfrowej).
  • Budowanie wspólnoty: promowanie współpracy i partnerstwa w rożnych regionach i gospodarkach świata poprzez listę mailingową.
  • Popularyzacja: poprzez publikacje i tłumaczenie badań w serii artykułów w “>Digital Studies/Les champ numérique (Studia cyfrowe).
  • Wspieranie: działanie na rzecz globalnej perspektywy w badaniach humanistyki cyfrowej w kontekstach lokalnych, narodowych i międzynarodowych.

Poprzez dzielenie się wiedzą ekspercką, zasobami, doświadczeniem i problemami, wszyscy stajemy się lepszymi specjalistami we wspólnej dyscyplinie naukowej.

Global Outlook :: Digital Humanities [Globalna Perspektywa :: Humanistyka Cyfrowa] (GO :: DH) jest Special Interest Group – SIG [Grupą Szczególnego Zainteresowania] w Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations – ADHO [Sojuszu Organizacji Humanistyki Cyfrowej]. Zarząd GO::DH rozważa objęcie pełnego członkostwa ADHO, to jest uzyskanie statusu organizacji posiadającej prawo głosu. To umożliwiłoby GO::DH lepsze reprezentowanie interesów międzynarodowych badaczy DH we władzach ADHO.

GO::DH aspiruje do tego, by być bezpieczną przestrzenią dla każdego bez względu na rasę, religię, etniczność, język, tożsamość i ekspresję płciową, orientację seksualną, wiek, możliwości fizyczne czy poznawcze. Stoimy na straży takich wartości jak: różnorodność, inkluzywność, sprawiedliwość i równość.

 

О проекте

Global Outlook :: DH [Глобальная перспектива :: Цифровые гуманитарные науки] направлена ​​на то, чтобы адресовать проблемы, мешающие общению и сотрудничеству между исследователями и студентами из области цифрового искусства, гуманитарных наук и культурного наследия в странах с высоким, средним и низким уровнем доходов. Как отметил Доменико Фиормонте, история гуманитарных вычислений является гибридной, маргинальной и периферийной, с инновациями на полях, а не в центре. Перспективы глобального Юга жизненно важны для формирования будущего цифровых гуманитарных наук.

Участники приезжают со всего мира, и мы все признаем, что во всем мире проводится отличная работа. Студенты, исследователи и учебные заведения во всех географических регионах и типах экономики могут внести большой вклад в развитие работы с цифровыми технологиями в сфере искусства, гуманитарных наук и культурного наследия. GO :: DH – это не программа помощи или пропаганды. Вместо этого GO :: DH использует дополнительные сильные стороны, интересы, способности и опыт участников посредством специальных проектов и мероприятий, профильной и рекламной деятельности, а также путем поощрения сотрудничества между отдельными проектами, учреждениями и исследователями.

Основные направления деятельности:

  • Открытие: повышение узнаваемости цифровой работы в секторах искусства, гуманитарных наук и культурного наследия во всем мире с помощью таких проектов, как Around DH in 80 days [Вокруг DH за 80 дней].
  • Создание сообщества: содействие сотрудничеству и сотрудничеству между регионами и экономиками через свой список рассылки
  • Исследования: координация исследований и поддержка использования технологий в секторах искусства, гуманитарных наук и культурного наследия по всему миру.
  • Распространение: публикацией и переводом исследований через серию статей в Digital Studies / Le champ numérique и других местах.
  • Адвокация: отстаивание глобальной перспективы цифровой гуманитарной работы в местном, национальном и международном контекстах

Обмениваясь опытом, ресурсами, опытом и проблемами, мы все становимся лучшими практиками нашей общей дисциплины.

GO :: DH [Глобальная перспектива :: Цифровые гуманитарные науки] – Special Interest Group (SIG) [группа по особым интересам] ADHO [Альянса цифровых гуманитарных организаций]. Исполнительный совет GO :: DH изучает возможность полноправного членства в ADHO как учредительной организации, что дало бы GO :: DH возможность лучше представлять интересы глобальных ученых DH в управлении ADHO.

GO :: DH стремится быть безопасным пространством для людей любой расы, религии, этнической принадлежности, языка, гендерной идентичности или выражения, сексуальной ориентации, возраста, физических или когнитивных способностей. Мы выступаем за ценности разнообразия, интеграции, справедливости и равенства.
