Matt Vetter (English Department) has been awarded a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation to support an upcoming Wikipedia Edit-a-thon event. The 2018 Interdisciplinary Art+Feminism Edit-a-thon, to be held March 7 at IUP, encourages participants to think critically about the encyclopedia’s systemic gender biases and to engage in direct editing to improve Wikipedia content on and of interest to women and LGBTQ+ identities across different disciplinary lenses.

The grant award supports facilitation of the event as well as research on participant experience and learning outcomes. Find out more about the Edit-a-thon at the library guide landing page, and pre-register to participate.
