Global Women Wikipedia Write-In
Today 10 am - 4 pm

Arts
Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies (401), Hale Library


Wikipedia is the 6th most visited site in the world, with over 8000 page views every minute but less than 1/5 of Wikipedia contributors are women, and very few of those women represent the Global South or women of color. Because of the demographic and social imbalance of the contributors, the encyclopedia favors privileged perspectives on the world and marginalizes knowledge about women and other marginalized communities. Help change this by writing women into Wikipedia.  Preselected resources will be available to help make your contributions easier and volunteers will help answer questions. Please sign up for a Wikipedia account ahead of time and make bring your laptop.

Oct 28 7 pm - 8:30 pm

Open forum
, Forum Hall, K-State Student Union

Join Melia Fritch, assistant professor, K-State Libraries; Tanya Gonzalez, associate professor, English; Jeffrey S. Smith, associate professor, geography; and Norma Valenzuela, visiting instructor, American Ethnic Studies, to consider immigration from all angles.
