[UPCOMING, 2/1] Professor Heather Ford (University of Technology Sydney): In this talk, Ford will discuss the key findings from her book, Writing the Revolution: Wikipedia and the Survival of Facts in the Digital Age (2022), where she follows how facts about the 2011 Egyptian Revolution were constructed by Wikipedians and attendant algorithms over the course of a decade. Ford will share the five key agents she found to have influenced how history is written on Wikipedia – and how these representations reverberate through the internet, forming the raw material for the facts that the majority of us consume as consensus truth about what happened and why it happened. Wikipedia, it turns out, is not just a quirky project, an anomaly of the internet age: it is the source of knowledge/power in an age dominated by the logics and affordances of data.
