Symbolic Interactionism on Wikipedia

I know many of us have reservations against wikipedia but students and other people do use it, often as first point of call. I just had a quick look through the Symbolic Interactionism entry and see various points where it could be revised. Hence, I was wondering whether anybody more expert than the student who has put it up there would be willing to maybe put a small group of people together to revise it. I would imagine a concerted effort would arrive at a better result than somebody doing the wok all by her- or himself.

  1. It could be a fun idea to have this organized by the SSSI, perhaps at the annual meetings? I could imagine some different possibilities…having students get together for some collaborative action, or invite teams of students to compete for creating the best wiki entry and getting a set of senior scholars to judge the submissions.

      good idea, Patrick. Do you think we could organise this?

      • I wrote an entry on this topic for the Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences and co-authored one with Patrick Williams in an Encyclopedia of Social Deviance. I would be happy to make these available as a starting point.
