Invitation: Reading Together: Reliability and Multilingual Global Communities Community Conversations

Reading Together is a multilingual, six-month Art+Feminism research project, led by Amber Berson, Monika S Jones and Melissa Tamani, with the support of Sue Barnum, Mariana Fossatti, Camille Larivée, Walaa Abdel Manaem, and, Ha-Loan Phan. We study reliable source (WP:RS) guidelines and related content policies on English, French, and Spanish Wikipedia pages.

What are these guidelines? How is a “reliable source” defined in action? And what is the impact of these guidelines on content about marginalized communities and editors on these three Wikipedias?Our Town Halls are designed as conversations with the communities involved in Wikipedias.We are here to have conversations with those who believe Marginalized* communities have and need space on and in Wikipedia communities. When you join, you are committing to upholding Art+Feminism’s Safe/Brave Space Policy.
