Roopika Risam created the event Black Lives Matter Edit-a-thon: Wikipedia as a Crowdsourced Historical Resource in the group Digital Ethnic Futures Consortium (DEFCon) on Humanities Commons 2 years, 3 months ago
Title: Black Lives Matter Edit-a-thon: Wikipedia as a Crowdsourced Historical Resource
Description: On November 4th from 4-6:45pm PST, DEFCon’s Dr. Jamila Moore Pewu will be hosting a Black Lives Matter themed Wikipedia edit-a-thon facilitated by the Digital Scholarship Center team at San Francisco State University.
This is a great opportunity for faculty, staff or students to gain new digital literacy skills in a collaborative environment, and to contribute to the quality of publicly available information about BLM and the African Diaspora. This event will be held via Zoom and for planning purposes, we ask that you pre-register at the following link: https://bit.ly/3okshnK. We can accommodate up to 30 participants, so please register early!
Do I need to have Wikipedia experience to attend?
Not at all, the facilitators will provide hands-on training through Zoom as well as supplemental written instructions, but we do ask that you take a couple of minutes to create a Wikipedia account before the event if you do not already have one.
Please feel free to email Dr. Moore Pewu directly if you have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
