As part of a global campaign to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of women in design and to increase female contributors to Wikipedia, School of Architecture Professor Lori Brown and Architecture Librarian Barbara Opar will hold a Women Wikipedia Design “WikiD” event on Tuesday, March 24, beginning at 5 p.m. in the King + King Architecture Library in Slocum Hall.
Women Wikipedia Design is a call for online activists and writers to contribute Wikipedia entries about women in architecture, urbanism and design. We aim to address the bias of designers online, and in the collective canon of notable figures. Join us to represent those whose work has impacted you.
Students of all gender identities are welcome to participate; editorial experience is not required. Refreshments will be served.
