Wikipedia Meetup page: Women_of_Science_and_Philosophy


Please join us for an opportunity to learn how to edit Wikipedia articles about the history of women in science and philosophy. From labor, science and activism, to art and philosophy, the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection and Project Vox document the many ways women have been productive, creative, and socially engaged over more than five hundred years. Put your knowledge and intellectual curiosity into action by creating, editing, or translating Wikipedia entries that document the lives and contributions of women in philosophy and science. Jane S. Richardson, a James B. Duke Professor of Biochemistry, who developed the ribbon-diagram as the first 3-D representation of protein structures, and a noted Wikipedia contributor, will inaugurate the Edit-a-thon. Please bring your laptop. Refreshments will be provided.

Sponsored by Duke University Libraries, the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture, the Italian Program at Duke, and the Duke Medical Center Archives.
