About

2015.Nov-headshotMSJAs of March 2017 I’m the Wikipedian-in-Residence with the OCLC’s Wikipedia + Libraries: Better Together project. I’m also finishing my doctorate at the University of California, San Diego in the Department of Communication and Science Studies program. In 2014-16, I was a Visiting Graduate Researcher in the Department of Communication at University of Washington in Seattle.

I have training in front-end web development (HTML5, CSS3, & Responsive Design for Web Development), from the University of Washington, Professional & Continuing Education.

I have been active in the Wikipedia project as an editor, educator, and community organizer.

I was a member of Catalyst Lab and served as the Co-Managing Editor with Cristina Visperas and Web Manager of Catalyst: Feminism, Theory, Technoscience, an open-source academic journal.

I earned a Master’s degree in Gender Studies at Central European University as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar and earned my BA at University of Washington in the Comparative History of Ideas program.

My scholarly orientations are in feminist theory, cultural studies, media studies, and science and technology studies. These fields inform my research projects.

Another version of my biography is on UC San Diego’s webpage. Occasionally, I look at/use Twitter, under the handle @monikajones.
