Wikipedia is a free, online encyclopedia that anyone can edit, and as such it is an interesting opportunity to participate in practices that materialize and sediment knowledge.
For this extra credit project, you will become AN EDITOR ON WIKIPEDIA! Based on your new expertise on situated personhood, and the eight articles we read in class, this projects asks you to expand or create a wikipedia page for any of the authors or topics we discussed.
So, for example, you could find the Wiki page for Schutz and expand its discussion of his piece “The Stranger.” Or, you could create a page for Schutz in a language other than English, if it doesn’t yet exist. Remember, anything on Wikipedia needs to have a reference, so the info you add must come from a published source (not from my oral lectures).
To hand in this project: 1. Take a screenshot of the Wiki page before you edit it, 2. Edit the page, including appropriate references. For instructions on how to do that, see here. 3. Take a screenshot of the page, with your newly published edits highlighted in yellow. It is fine if your page is in a language other than English. 4. Send these screenshots to your TA by Monday Sept. 2 at 11:59pm
