Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Arts BuildingWednesday 6 March 2019

Event type: WorkshopAudience: All audiencesAcademic Schools and Departments: Art History

Event Details

Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented. Those who identify as women/non-binary are significantly under represented on Wikipedia, both in terms of its contributors and its content.

Colleagues from the School of Art History and the Centre for Contemporary Art want to change that.

Join them and colleagues from across the University in Seminar Room 5 of the Arts Building for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects relating to art and feminism.

People of all gender identities welcome. Participants are invited to join for part or all of the session – and even if you don’t intend to edit, feel free to stop by and show your support.

Materials and suggestions for updates will be provided, tutorials and help for beginner Wikipedians, and coffee. Please bring your laptop (your power cord).

If you have any questions, email Catherine Spencer (ces24@st-andrews.ac.uk), Martyna Majewska (mem22@st-andrews.ac.uk) or Camilla Røstvik (cmr30@st-andrews.ac.uk).
