I am (Gustavo) Góngora, a Spanish-Uruguayan Wikimedian hailing from Trondheim, Norway. I am a prospective PhD student in Translation and Intercultural Studies at the University of Manchester (see Wikimedia Research). I also hold an M.Phil in Linguistics and Language Acquisition from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU Dragvoll), where I am currently employed as Teaching/Research assistant. My main interests include minority/endangered languages, hybridity, language mixing, and the cultural aspects of translation. I am active in many parts of Wikimedia (on and off). I am active on both the Spanish and the Catalan Wikipedia as an editor and administrator, as a volunteer with Wikimedia Norge and Wikimedia España (and previously with Wikimedia Uruguay, Iberocoop and Amical), and some other international Wikimedia-related projects. In the past I was also an ArbCom member on the Spanish-language Wikipedia. From 2011 through 2012 I served as a jury member for Wiki Loves Monuments.
I have been a Wikimedian since July 2006, an administrator and bureaucrat on the Spanish Wikipedia since April 2007, an administrator on the Catalan Wikipedia from 2010 to 2017, and a CheckUser on the Catalan Wikipedia for as long as I can remember. I have written more than 4,000 articles in different languages, mostly by translating from English into Spanish, Catalan, French and Norwegian. I have been an active user on the Norwegian Wikipedia (bokmål) since 2012.
In 2009 I was a candidate for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. From 2010 to 2011 I was a board member of Wikimedia España (Spain). Between 2008 and 2011 I was the Spanish-language press room contact for Wikimedia Foundation.
I have been a member of the Ombudsman Commission since February 2017. My term expires in February 2019.
You can sometimes find me on Freenode IRC in channels like #wikipedia-es, #wikipedia-ca, #wikipedia-no and #wikimedia. You could try to locate me under the nicks Gongora, Gustavo86 or Terere.
