Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

March 1 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented: a 2011 survey by the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Let’s change that: join us at the Lamar Dodd School of Art Library room N201 for an afternoon of communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. Wikipedians will be on hand for training, computers are available and snacks and coffee will be provided. Contact callan@uga.edu for more information. Presented in collaboration with the Lamar Dodd School of Art.
