    • We will try to keep these tests as short as possible, so if a page is not depicted properly, please try again after a couple of minutes. Should you encounter further problems, please send us an email: iaawiki@gmail.com.

Guest Presentation: "Wikipedia in Linguistics - A Backstage Tour"

  • Dr. Susanne Kopf (Vienna)
  • Wednesday, November 21, 2018, 13:00 (we are starting on time, so please be there about 5 mins early)
  • R. 0.406 (EF50)
  • This talk presents a first foray into understanding the collaborative online encyclopaedia, Wikipedia, as a repository of data for linguistic and discourse analysis. I will touch upon key Wikipedia-internal features, such as the encyclopaedia's contributor hierarchy, collaborative authorship processes and site structure (e.g. division into Wikipedia articles and Wikipedia discussion pages). Then, I will discuss the website's potential societal relevance in terms of reach and readership but also with respect to its potential to function as a general transnational public sphere (Eriksen 2005; Fraser 1995; Habermas 1992). I will also give a very brief overview of corpus-assisted discourse studies as a viable approach to Wikipedia data. I will close with a case study (the representation of the EU between 2001 and 2015) which serves as a practical demonstration of how Wikipedia (data) can be studied in the context of (Critical) Discourse Studies.
