University at Albany Art + Feminism Edit-a-thon

University at Albany Art + Feminism Edit-a-thon Online

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female editors and articles about and of interest to women. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

Let’s change that. Join us for a communal updating, via Zoom, of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. This edit-a-thon is co-sponsored by the Information Literacy Department of the University Libraries and the University Art Museum.

We will provide links to tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian and to relevant reference sources. Information about women artists connected with the University Art Museum will also be available. Between 2:30-4:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time, we will provide individual or small group assistance within the Zoom session. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.

Please register for the virtual event below. In addition, please register as a Wikipedia editor for the event.
