Global Women of Color Write-In #2/#GWWI[edit]

Welcome to the SECOND Global Women of Color Write-In event!

We are supported by the Postcolonial Digital Humanities Rewriting Wikipedia Project and the Global Outlook on Digital Humanities Special Interest Group of the Association for Digital Humanities Organizations. Our FIRST #GWWI meeting was in April 2013. Join us Tuesday March 18, 2014 for our second #GWWI meeting!
