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. 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.

More information:

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.
