An undergraduate student at Drake University who joined Wikipedia for a classroom project in the Spring 2013 course Global Youth Studies. The concept and community fascinate me and my interests in inter-disciplinary subjects including music, politics, social action, international culture, and language. I am currently pursuing two projects and would welcome feedback as I experience the process.
- Project #1- A contribution for Global Youth Studies on music and youth subcultures. In particular, I am interested in contributing to Punk subculture about youth experience in Mexico, Peru, and South Africa and devising a more functional way to integrate existing articles on different youth subcultures into the general article on the topic.
- Project #2- An Honors Thesis Project on systemic bias in Wikipedia. As a part of this project, I will add to my contributions on punk subculture by contributing to Nueva canción and Socialism of the 21st century. I will use these experiences as a lens through which to encounter the barriers of language and socioeconomic status that perpetuate systemic bias in Wikipedia.KLi 32 (talk) 21:33, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
