Bahujan Pedia: Insurgency Online

(part of the Ambedkar Annual Lecture and the Dalit Studies Initiative)

Wikipedia Editathon with Thenmozhi Soundarajan (Equality Labs) and Josue David Chavez (ICLS)

Equity Labs team has been organizing Wikipedia Editathons throughout India and U.S. These consist of meet ups during Dalit History Month aimed towards improving Wikipedia’s coverage of Dalit people, events and issues, to share the contributions to history from Dalits around the world.

This particular Editathon will explore a wikipedia called “Bahujan Pedia” that will allow users to enter content and to map caste inequality and discrimination.

The Editathon will also be an opportunity to present results about the experience of caste in the diaspora, gathered from a recently concluded caste survey.
