Research on Media and Memory

Dear friends, 

I would like to invite you to participate in the research project I'm undertaking as part of the Initiative for Research in Media and Memory at the University of Hull (UK) and that is hosted here --> https://wanderingliquen.com/ 

The aim of this research project is to create an app that will help individuals to explore a topic of their choice in Wikipedia and provide them with information (a feedback) on their usage that will highlight the type of stereotypical biases (memory transgressions towards stereotypes such as gender, race, economic background etc.) that characterize their exploration. 

The study explores the relationship between human memory and digital memory in creative archives and is being carried out from a feminist and decolonial approach, which means that we are trying to be inclusive throughout the work process and that any feedback you may want to give us on this and other issues will be very well received and much appreciated. 

The research project has three stages:
a) You will be asked to complete an online survey about the user experience of retrieval and knowledge discovery in creative archives (The questionnaire will take approximately 8 minutes of your time) 
b) The study will require from you an interview where you will be asked to give further information about some of the questions raised on the general survey. In order to be as unobtrusive as possible, you will be able to record it in your own space, on your own time and with your own computer and send it to the following email address research <at> wanderingliquen.com (The interview may take between 15 and 30 minutes)  
c) You will be asked to participate in 2 online events to test the usability of the application. The first event will take place between April and May 2016, the second event will take place between September and October 2016 and you will decide the extent of your participation)

Your participation in this research will be completely confidential and data will be averaged and reported in aggregate. Possible outlets of dissemination may be papers published in academic journals and a PhD dissertation. Although your participation in this research may not benefit you personally, it will help us understand how to improve the user experience of exploration in creative archives such as micro blogging sites and social media platforms. 

Thanks!

Latest WMF brouhahas relevant to gender gap??

Wondering if there is any particular relevance to the gender gap issue 
in the removal of one board member and protests against the new one? Or 
just a general "editor trust" issue, which makes many editors dis-trust 
any "close the gap" programs/initiatives by WMF?? (Or at least gives 
them an *excuse* to distrust them!)

Lists of notable deaths of 2015

Links to lists in major news outlets (NYT, BBC, LA TImes, Toronto Star, etc.) along with commentary on gender bias in obits:
http://forward.com/sisterhood/330631/for-women-gender-bias-continues-even-in-death/

The three women listed in the article do have WP articles.  It would take some digging--paywalls, registration, etc,--to see if any of the other women do not yet have articles.

Hope to see you there.

She's Geeky - Bay Area 2016

Happy New Year! Did you make resolutions related to career path, geeking out, networking, mentoring, and/or bolstering your STEM street cred in 2016? We suggest joining us for She's Geeky and get those resolutions underway!

About She's Geeky

Without places to re-energize and networks that support them, women who have done the hard work of developing their skills to work in STEM may drop out after just a few years in their field. We want to improve the situation of women in STEM fields, increase retention rates, and create a place for women to discuss the topics that are meaningful to them. Inspiring each other, creating vital networks, and sharing skills are at the core of our events. 

Women attending She’s Geeky events find the inspiration necessary to continue on STEM career paths because they are given the opportunity to present their work, discuss critical issues and build peer networks for support.

We work with and promote existing activities and organizations in regions around the country. She’s Geeky is a neutral event that supports connection between different geeky cultures by using a format where the agenda is created live at the event by the women in attendance.

Since the first successful event in 2007, we have hosted 20 events around the country inclusive of women of all ages who self-identify as geeks. We attract women from a broad spectrum of technological specialties, professions, industries, levels of expertise, and across generations.

Student & Teacher Discount

Group Ticket Discount

Re: Gendergap Digest, Vol 60, Issue 2

Thanks, Emily and Neotarf :)

I was hoping my piece would spur action on a few new WP articles so I'm glad you noticed... Unfortunately most of the images I could find for it are not free but I may reach out to see if the authors would consider adding the appropriate licenses.

Happy new year, all.

Maia

That's a great idea. These retrospectives are always a lot of fun.  There
used to be a TV series that reviewed the news of the week--That Was The
Week That Was <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS8ac4catVk>--a comedy
though, not serious.  They also serve as a catchup for any events that you
missed while traveling or whatever,  I had thought it was Smallbones who
suggested it, but didn't check. So thank you to Smallbones.

These would be a lot easier to write if people would keep track of possible
events to include throughout the year.  Then at the end of the year, you
would have all the sources and would just have to choose the most
significant events, or whatever criteria you were using.  Some of the links
I gave above are not so much events as trends.   I have also just thought
of Justin Trudeau's "Because it's 2015" statement.  Also some private
companies that stepped into the act and banned online harassment--Reddit
and Facebook took steps against online harassment after the iCloud hack,
Google and Bing took action over the summer, and Twitter, which had defined
itself as as a platform for speech, banned harassment against all
expectation. Then there are annual things like pay equity day
<http://www.pay-equity.org/day.html>, that could become an annual feature.
Sue Gardner's Twitter has some info about women leaving tech in the side
bar, that might be a good starting point for career trends.  There might
also be developments in women's health that people really should know
about--treatments that become outmoded, discoveries, etc. I would prefer to
call it just "Women in 2015", or something along those lines--sort of a
State of the Union report.

This doesn't really fit under the GGTF rubric, does it. Would it be
worthwhile to start a separate project?

Re: Women's rights in 2015

Thanks for sending these along! Since my pet project is women scientists I want to note some articles that these sources could be used for. And a hearty congratulations to Maia for a lovely article from Scientific American! I'm quite pleasantly surprised that half already had articles - and yes, this is progress. I'm going to write [[Margaret Tisdale]] this weekend, and y'all can hold me to it.

The only gender-related events that stood out for me this year were the Saudi elections, with women both voting and running for office for the first time, and Gambia doing away with FGM. 

If anyone wants to take a stab at it, or just read up on it, here is start on sources. There are five women listed in the last link who do not yet have Wikipedia articles:  Kathryn Barnard, Aída Fernández Ríos, Anita Kurmann, Dottie Thomas, and Margaret Tisdale.  A couple of them have NYT obits, so some definite gaps in WP coverage there.

Women's rights in 2015

I notice someone suggested a followup to last year's Women's rights in 2014 article.  I was hoping someone would write one, mostly because I don't usually follow these issues, and I found the last one rather informative.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women's_rights_in_2014

The only gender-related events that stood out for me this year were the Saudi elections, with women both voting and running for office for the first time, and Gambia doing away with FGM. 

If anyone wants to take a stab at it, or just read up on it, here is start on sources.
