Medieval Women, Modern Readers Wikipedia-Edit-a-Thon
28th October 2020, 13:00-16:00 GMT (UK)
Medievalists around the world are invited to our #medievalwiki session, creating and editing Wikipedia articles. We are especially keen to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of medieval race, gender and sexuality, and want to create and add to articles about medieval women and their contemporary readers, especially people of colour and queer scholars, translators and artists.
Wikipedia experts and newbies alike are encouraged to attend – we will begin with a 30-minute introduction, we will have experts on hand to help, and there will be regular Zoom check-ins throughout. If you can’t make the online session, we would love for people to make edits throughout the week and share them using the #medievalwiki hashtag.
While we call ourselves #medievalwiki, friendly feminists from all disciplines or none are welcome to join us!
