Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Culture. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

Title[edit]

WikiProject on Culture

Scope[edit]

This project is here to help coordinate the people who are working on the Culture portal and organizing the vast array of articles that fall under the topic. See also Talk:Culture and Portal_talk:Culture.

Tasks[edit]

General strategy and discussion forums[edit]

Improve the bird's eye view[edit]

The entire subject and Wikipedia's coverage of it is intended to be summarized in the Outline of culture and its branch outlines. These are in turn is part of Wikipedia's outline system which is one of Wikipedia's main contents systems.

Please look it over and fill-in missing topics. If Wikipedia has an article or article section about those topics, please add links to them.

While analyzing the outline, please answer the following questions (and fix the outline as needed):

  1. What's missing?
  2. Is the structure of the outline (sections and indents) representative of the subject?
  3. Does the outline help understand the relationships between the topics presented in the best way possible?

The overall purpose of the outline is to help readers comprehend the subject by showing what belongs to it, and within the subject what belongs to what.

The outline is a taxonomy of the subject, and also serves as a table of contents and navigation aid to browse Wikipedia's articles (and article sections) about the subject.

It is also a useful tool for the WikiProject to analyze, plan, develop, and revise culture-related material. It is a hub from which to organize cultural topics.

It was built as a "reverse outline", a structural model of an existing work, which in addition to being a summary of the work, can reveal the gaps and other weaknesses for revision purposes.

Please help improve it.

It's our bird's eye view.

Thank you.

Improve structure[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject_Culture is aimed at arriving at a Neutral point of view of Culture throughout History and across Continents in a uniform and consistent manner.

The approach is to begin with the Humanities article and follow its Academic cues to examine everything that Wikipedia contains so far that relate to the #Goals of the project.

All we want to do is make a set of tables that can transclude through this trek through time and space from the standpoint of the Anthropologist. We will do this by observing the Cause and effect relationship between Events and Societies, helping to link concepts and ideas in a creative and resourceful way. We present Artifacts, Archetypes and other things we find as we go, cleaning up, filling in and building context as we go.
