My name is Eddie Avila and I’m with the organization Global Voices. I’ve been lurking for the past couple of months getting a feel of different experiences in research around Wikimedia-related topics.
We were recently awarded a Project Grant from the Wikimedia Foundation to conduct a research project examining the current state of active and incubator Wikipedias in indigenous languages of Latin America with a special focus on identifying ongoing challenges for native-speaking editors and the demand for this content in their communities.
I believe some members of this list provided some feedback on the proposal, which was greatly appreciated. The project is still a work in progress and the final, refined proposal will be added to the original proposal. We are looking forward to adding the Lead Researcher to the team to help us better define the parameters and design the methodology.
Anyway, we recently published a call for applications (it is in Spanish because of the language requirement associated with the position), but if you or someone you might know would be interested in applying, please send them this link. Deadline is next Friday, Nov. 4.
