Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
The Art+Feminism Wikipedia assignment consists of several elements, each designed to compliment the in-class work you will be doing on epistemology, feminist theories and perspectives on knowledge production in the arts. It involves the following elements:
  • Independent research on a particular topic/woman and/or GSM (gender and/or sexual minority) of your choice 
  • A Tuesday, 2/20 class session with Rosalinda Linares at the Oberlin College Library intended to help students develop sound research strategies for finding, evaluating, and using sources
  • A Thursday, 3/15 class session (and/or optional participation on the Art+Feminism Editathon on Saturday, 3/3)  during which each student will edit their Wikipedia article
