Description

**Please note: In response to concerns over the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), this event will not take place as planned. Stony Brook University continues to closely monitor the guidance provided by the CDC and New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).**

As part of the Stony Brook University Libraries’ month-long celebration of Women’s History Month, please join us for our first Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. Art+Feminism Edit-a-thons aim to improve the gender balance on Wikipedia, where most editors are men. Since 2014, participants in these edit-a-thons have created or improved over 58,000 pages!

At this event, a team of librarians and Wikipedia experts is ready to help you create and improve articles related to gender, feminism, and the arts. No prior experience editing Wikipedia is needed, and all are welcome.

Refreshments will be provided. We will have some laptops available for use, but we suggest that you bring your own if possible.

More information about edit-a-thons is available on Wikipedia. More information about Art+Feminism is available on their website.

This event is presented in collaboration with Art+Feminism, the Stony Brook University Department of Art, the Stony Brook Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Wikimedia New York City, and the Wiki Education Foundation.

Location

The Center for Scholarly Communication is located in Melville Library’s North Reading Room on the second floor.

Registration

Please register as a participant at the Wikipedia event page.

If you do not already have one, we suggest that you create a Wikipedia account prior to this event. It only takes a minute!
