When: June 7, 2023 -
June 8, 2023

Registration is now open for the 2023 (online) wikihistories symposium on the 7th and 8th of June (see The theme of this year’s symposium is “Wikipedia and its implications for memory (and forgetting)”. In this first of our annual symposiums, we will take stock of what we know and what we still need to know about Wikipedia as a history-making platform. How does Wikipedia construct history and collective memory? Does Wikipedia enable the forging of a collective memory via consensus, or are some versions of the past pushed to the fringes? What gets remembered and what gets forgotten as a result? The draft schedule and book of abstracts are available and the symposium has been scheduled to accommodate as many time zones as possible.
