Lire Ensemble est un projet de recherche Art+Féminisme multilingue de six mois, dirigé par Amber Berson, Monika S Jones et Melissa Tamani, avec le soutien de Sue Barnum, Mariana Fossatti, Camille Larivée, Walaa Abdel Manaem et Ha-Loan Phan. Nous étudions les lignes directrices des sources fiables (WP:RS) et les politiques de contenu connexes sur les pages Wikipédia en anglais, français et espagnol.

Quelles sont ces lignes directrices ? Comment une “source fiable” est-elle définie en pratique ? Et quel est l’impact de ces lignes directrices sur les contenus concernant les communautés marginalisées et les éditeurs de ces trois Wikipédia ?

Nos mairies sont conçues comme des conversations avec les communautés impliquées dans les Wikipédias.

Nous sommes ici pour avoir des conversations avec ceux qui pensent que les communautés marginalisées* ont et ont besoin d’espace sur et dans les communautés Wikipédia.
