Concept Note[edit]

Guideline created under Sou Dhuni Teen Project By Sheena

The digital domain is becoming increasingly significant as a knowledge repository today. Especially relevant in this context is the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, which contains information on almost every topic under the sun and is used extensively by researchers. The fact that information from the Wikipedia is even used as a starting point of academic writing necessitates thinking about how this information is organized, or in other words, how we conceptualize Wikipedia as a knowledge resource. In the multilingual Indian context, generation of content in the Indian languages is a logical next step. It is with the intention of strengthening this knowledge network in the social sciences, that Women's Studies Centre, Pune University conducts content generation workshops with university researchers. The broad mandate of the digital resource generation workshop is to introduce university students to tools of collaborative knowledge production on the internet and methods for generating new online content in Indian languages under Sau Dhuni Teen Project. Also introductory session on Wiktionary.

Project Aim[edit]

  • Facilitate researchers to think critically about concepts and their associations
  • Involve researchers as active editors on the Indian language Wikipedias
  • Utilize Wikipedia as a platform to generate Indian language annotations of academic texts in Women's Studies and the Social Sciences

We hope to also engage the students in annotating one key women's studies text (each) through follow up workshops and credit them as contributors to our Annotated Bibliography project.
