Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon (In honor of Adrianne Wadewitz)
Santa Anita A
Wednesday, March 18

This special session will honor our beloved, brilliant colleague, Adrianne Wadewitz, who died earlier this year in a tragic rock climbing accident. (Her New York Times obituary can be found here): http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/20/business/media/adrianne-wadewitz-37-wikipedia-editor-and-academic-dies.html?_r=0 )

An 18th-centuryist, Wadewitz was also an innovator in digital humanities. In particular, she worked tirelessly to increase the representation of women and minorities on Wikipedia--an online resource which historically has been edited primarily by men. Concerned with content, she wanted to ensure that a diversity of stories and voices were being recognized. During our extended session,we will thus add new entries and expand incomplete ("stub") entries for important literary, historical, artistic, and scientific figures from our period. In essence, we hope to contribute to an Encyclopédie project for the 21st century, following Diderot's aim: "to change the way people think."

If you are interested in participating in this ground-breaking, collaborative event, please contact Courtney Wennerstrom (cwenners@indiana.edu) or Christopher Nagle (cnagle@wmich.edu)
