I’d be happy to be involved. The two distinctive angles I have to offer are that 1) my residency is now explicitly about culturally diversifying Wikimedia projects- not just about the host institution’s collections. 2) using Wikidata queries to support my work on Wikipedia, e.g. to find translations into other languages of articles I’ve written. https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:MartinPoulter/queries/khalili

Hi all,


I'd be interested in joining this panel to talk about Wikimedia Australia's residencies.


There's a bit about a residency I did last year here: https://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Wikimedian_In_Residence_Wrap_Up

Hi Flo & all, 


I would be very interested in collaborating on a shared proposal to Wikimania this year. A panel seems like a great idea. 


I have not been very involved on the listserv and with the WREN group (apologies!), but as a refresher, I work with the CCCC Wikipedia Initiative to engage scholars in writing studies (i.e. rhetoric, composition, technical communication, literacy, and language studies) to edit Wikipedia as a form of public scholarship.
