Wikipedia, heterotopi och versioner av kulturella minnen

Abstract [en]

This article proposes a view of contemporary online encyclopaedias, specifically Wikipedia, as digital heterotopias. For this the article draws together studies on encyclopaedic expressions throughout history with Foucault's notion of heterotopia, i.e. actually existing utopias or 'other', particular spaces that exist besides society's regular spaces and which work according to their own rules. Furthermore, the article investigates Wikipedia as an archive for our cultural memory in its different – and often contested - versions. Participatory online encyclopaedias are hence framed as continuation of an Enlightenment ideal as well as distinct networked spaces that are made possible through the affordances of the Internet.
