Wikipedia and/as Data: Call for Submissions

What is Wikipedia’s relationship to data? What should Wikipedia’s relationship to data be?

On 19 June the 2024 wikihistories symposium will gather together social scientists, humanists, critical technologists, and others to investigate Wikipedia’s connection to data and the importance of this relationship for the global information ecosystem and the production of knowledge. Participants will be invited to share short presentations and to participate in discussions. The deadline for submissions is 15 February 2024.
