Gruwell Wikipedia Politics of Exclusion

This week we’re reading Leigh Gruwell’s “Wikipedia’s Politics of Exclusion: Gender, Epistemology, and Feminist Rhetorical (In)action” from Computers & Composition. As you formulate your response, you may find the following questions helpful:

  • How do the systems of Wikipedia exclude women’s voices? Why is this important to understanding knowledge online?
  • How is understanding the human subjects behind writing online significant for PTC?
  • Gruwell does a stellar job of describing her methodology. What did you take away from this article that can help you with your own research project?
