Just For The Record: Gender Redirect

Just For The Record is a project addressing how gender is represented in new media and writing/publishing tools like Wikipedia, and what influence this has on the way history is recorded.

Just For The Record organizes its second event, Gender Redirect, a day bringing attention to gender representations in language constructions. Gender Redirect takes over the threads developed in the previous event, Heroines, and continues its analysis of the process of Wikipedia editing, with its specific functions such as ’view history’ and ’talk page’, analysis tools like metrics and operations like redirection and
disambiguation - to investigate the possibilities and challenges of gender-neutral writing.

The day starts with presentations, followed by discussions and ends with a Wikipedia editing session in the afternoon.

Guest speaker: Femke Snelting.
Free entrance, free lunch. Bring a laptop.
