Gleeson Library Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon
This event is co-hosted by Gleeson Library, Department of Art + Architecture, and Thacher Gallery.
The workshop will be hybrid, and a collaboration with the Global Women’s Rights Forum. Using our Echo 360 during the event will offer folks the opportunity to participate virtually. We strive to build a conversation and a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. People of all gender identities and expressions welcomed and encouraged to attend. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary!
Participants can work on any of the following, based on their comfort level: • create new articles • check facts • upload relevant images for articles • add citations to entries • check articles for grammar • edit articles so they are easier to read + consume
The Library will provide: • Tutorials for beginner Wikipedians, • Suggestions for entries that need editing, • Reliable research materials
