Diversity, Diaspora and Digitality: The Worlds of Wikimedia and Beyond
This conference seeks to investigate the variety of ways that digital media is (or isn’t) meeting the many global challenges we face. We invite participants to consider how communities that have been displaced, marginalised or otherwise disadvantaged, may best be served by online platforms and open knowledge movements.
Conference will address topics such as open knowledge, global diversity, inclusivity and cultural dynamism from a range of perspectives, including digital communication, indigenous knowledge, health communication and Internet studies. Papers will explore knowledge activism, such as the Wikimedia movement; open platforms, such as Wikipedia; as well as digital methods across different disciplines and fields of knowledge.
