Political economy is a subfield of the social sciences that focuses on the way in which power relations, political conflict, government policy, interest groups, and political institutions shape economic behavior and economic outcomes. Individuals have many identities (political, economic, social) and are subject to numerous forms of authority. Economic authority is most often thought of highly decentralized while political authority comes from above. As such, departing from traditional economics, political economy assumes economic outcomes are not simply the result of resources and market forces, but also from political forces that shape outcomes through government policy.

Assignment - Introduction to the Wikipedia project

 Welcome to your Wikipedia project's course timeline. This page will guide you through the Wikipedia project for your course. Be sure to check with your instructor to see if there are other pages you should be following as well. 

 This page breaks down writing a Wikipedia article into a series of steps, or milestones. These steps include online trainings to help you get started on Wikipedia. 

 Your course has also been assigned a Wikipedia Content Expert. Check your Talk page for notes from them. You can also reach them through the "Get Help" button on this page. 

 To get started, please review the following handouts: 

Assignment - Practicing the basics
  • Create an account and join this course page, using the enrollment link your instructor sent you.
  •  It's time to dive into Wikipedia. Below, you'll find the first set of online trainings you'll need to take. New modules will appear on this timeline as you get to new milestones. Be sure to check back and complete them! Incomplete trainings will be reflected in your grade. 


This week, everyone should have a Wikipedia account.

Assignment - Draft (and post) your paragraphs
  • On the Students tab, assign your chosen topic to yourself.

You've picked a topic and found your sources. Now it's time to start writing.

  • Complete the "Sources and Citations" training (linked below).
  • You are expected to contribute 3 paragraphs to any wikipedia page dealing with the content discussed in the course - Each paragraph should include at least 3 references (only one of which can be from a course assigned reading.
  • When you make a small claim, clearly state the fact in your own words, and then cite the source where you found the information.

Creating a new article?

  •  Write an outline of that topic in the form of a standard Wikipedia article's "lead section." Write it in your sandbox
    •  A "lead" section is not a traditional introduction. It should summarize, very briefly, what the rest of the article will say in detail. The first paragraph should include important, broad facts about the subject. A good example is Ada Lovelace. See Editing Wikipedia page 9 for more ideas. 

Improving an existing article?

  •  Identify what's missing from the current form of the article.  Make notes for improvement in your sandbox.  In your sandbox, write a few sentences about what you plan to contribute to the selected article.  
    •  Compile a list of relevant, reliable books, journal articles, or other sources. Post that bibliography in your sandbox. Make sure to check in on the Talk page to see if anyone has advice on your bibliography. 

Don't forget to post!

  • Once your drafts on your sandbox are complete, make your additions live on the main pages.
  • Due by December 2

Resources: Editing Wikipedia pages 7–9
