Event description

Description

Join the American Folklife Center on February 8th for a Edit-A-Thon to expand the online presence of women who documented the world. This event is part of its multi-year initiative to highlight, explore, and celebrate the contributions of women as ethnographic fieldworkers and call attention to the role of women in establishing many of the seminal collections that now enrich the AFC archive and ethnographic archives throughout the world. During the Edit-A-Thon, we plan to add and/or expand entries for 25-30 women, both historic and contemporary, who documented traditional culture. We will focus on collections in the AFC archive. Activities will be centered at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, but off-site participation is encouraged. AFC staff will assist on-site and off-site researchers and provide archival materials.

No Wikipedia editing experience necessary. Training will be provided.

Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Lunch will be provided.
