Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon is an annual, global collaborative effort to redress the under representation of women, gender fluid, and BIPOC women editors and artists to the global online encyclopedia. http://artandfeminism.org offers online training for instructors/editors, provides grant monies for pizza and childcare, and backup when the inevitable “old guard” male Wiki editor resistance to an addition kicks in. The edit-a-thon is held globally in and around March, which is Women’s History Month.

Kelly Dennis, Associate Professor of Digital Culture in the Department of Digital Media & Design, will introduce the Edit-a-Thon and offer a crash course in Wikipedia editing. Bring your laptop to join the edit-a-thon and help close the information gaps related to gender, feminism, and the arts.

Co-sponsored by American Studies and the Center for the Study of Popular Music at UConn.
