Art and Feminism Edit-a-Thon


Saturday, November 1, 2014
1:00 PM – 4:00 PM


American University Bender Library
GRC Classroom B60

4400 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC

Join us for an edit-a-thon to enhance existing Wikipedia entries related to feminism and art history. Possible categories include women artists, art history, gender studies, women and the arts, and feminism and the arts. Using a variety of library resources, participants will not only learn how to update Wikipedia, but will take away fundamental research skills and a greater knowledge of how to use primary sources for their own research.
