On Thursday, March 14, 2019, from 10 am to 4:30 pm, the Bowes Art & Architecture Library (355 Roth Way, on the Stanford campus) will host an Art + Science + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in recognition of International Women’s Day (March 8), Women’s History Month (all of March), and Pi Day (3.14). Come when you want, and stay as long as you want! This will be the third annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia event hosted by the Stanford Libraries, and the first time we’ve broadened our scope to include women in the sciences.
The goal of the event is to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of women in the arts and sciences, and to encourage female editorship. The edit-a-thon will include tutorials and support for beginning Wikipedians, a team of experienced librarians for research assistance, high-quality reference materials, a community of like-minded Wikipedia authors and editors, and some nice refreshments. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate, with a special welcome to transgender and cisgender women.
Log in via the Event Dashboard to make sure that your contributions are counted toward the Art+Feminism campaign.
Admission is free and open to faculty, students, staff, and all community members.
Please bring a laptop, if you have one.
