Anthropology 262: In-Class Activity - Folksonomies

Language and Power
Professor Joel Lee

Folksonomy : a user-generated system of classifying and organizing online content into different categories by the use of metadata such as electronic tags.

 

Examples:

Let's Tag some Zines! 

- Take a look at one or both of the zines below

- Think about how you would describe each zine (content, format, etc.) 

- Use the link above each zine to access a Google Sheet - enter your descriptive terms as tags, one tag per cell
