Join us for the Aphra Behn Society Editathon at the Grand Summit Hotel on Wednesday, November 4, 2015!

The editors of ABO: Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830 with Karen Gevirtz, President of the Aphra Behn Society, will host a five-hour Aphra Behn Society Editathon as a pre-conference event in honor of Adrianne Wadewitz. On the day of the event, we will meet in the hotel (room: Morris Suite), and provide wifi, on-site support, and an introduction to Wikipedia editing for interested participants.

We will also be live tweeting the event to our ABO followers to promote awareness of:

  1. Wikipedia feminist activism
  2. ABO: Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830
  3. Women in the arts 1640-1830

We will create a community of the participants from the event to encourage the ongoing use of Wikipedia and Wikipedia editing in the classroom. A panel/workshop on using Wikipedia and Wikipedia editing in the classroom is scheduled for later in the conference.

This event is supported by a Wikimedia Project and Event Grants (PEG) from the Wikipedia Inspire Campaign to increase the representation of women and female editors on Wikipedia.

Regrets[edit]

  1. I would love to participate and my week is pretty flexible except for this Wednesday afternoon where I have three appointments. Rats! Liz Read! Talk! 19:54, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
  2. This means so much to me since I grew up in Summit. However ... I have things to attend to in my current hometown today, so I do not think it likely that I can come down there Face-sad.svg. Daniel Case (talk) 16:49, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
