#WCCWiki – Women’s Classical Committee UK Wikipedia Editathon

Friday 5 July 2019, 1 pm onward – Room 804, Institute of Education


Since 2017 the Women’s Classical Committee UK (WCC UK) has been working to increase the online visibility of women classical scholars by training and encouraging classicists to edit Wikipedia. At the start of the initiative, only around ten per cent of the 200+ Wikipedia biographies of classicists had women as their subjects; through our regular editing and training sessions we are working towards redressing this gender imbalance. We invite beginners as well as experienced Wikipedia editors to this drop-in session to learn more about the work of #WCCWiki, gain practical tips on editing, and join us in helping to make the world’s largest source of knowledge a fairer representation of classical scholarship.

Free drop-in session; all welcome. Please bring your own laptop.
