This will be a three-hour workshop. During the first half of the workshop, Dr. Elisa Fruhauf Garcia (Fluminense Federal University, Brazil) will present to the students how we can edit Wikipedia in order to make women's history less underrepresented there and to have more biographical entries about them, but also including them in general history entries. In the second half of the workshop the students will experience editing Wikipedia themselves. We will log in and work with some preselected entries, trying to find women who were important historical agents but are missing in general narratives and/or do not have their own entries.
Space is limited. PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED
