Women in Translation: Goethe-Institut Wiki-Workshop and Edit-a-thon
Join us for the Goethe-Institut New York Women in Translation edit-a-thon workshop.
Help address the gender and other gaps on Wikipedia relating to literary translation by editing articles on international women writers, women translators and other underrepresented groups. Come with your own computer, connect with countless resources, and leave with a basic toolkit to continue editing on your own. The workshop will be led by translators Margaret Carson and Alta L. Price.
Newcomers to Wikipedia and experienced contributors of all genders, including queer, gender-non-conforming and gender-non-binary, are welcome.
Please create your own Wikipedia account before the session: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:CreateAccount
Kindly RSVP via email to email@example.com to indicate interest in attending.
As a starting-off point, we will be providing a list of Wikipedia articles that are already in need of work. Participants are asked to bring their own laptops, which must be able to connect to the Internet.
