This workshop is for brand new and experienced Wikipedia editors who are interested in improving Wikipedia according to the aims of MedievalWiki (on which, see below).
We will gather on Zoom and introduce newcomers to the MedievalWiki project and how to get started with editing. This will be a relaxed and informal workshop, designed to build the confidence of new and new-ish editors and to provide a social space for more experienced editors.
If you can’t make the whole two hours, feel free to drop in just for the first or the second hour (let us know when you book when you plan to stop by).
MedievalWiki is a project to improve the quality of medieval articles on Wikipedia (and related projects including Wikimedia and Wikidata). The project is specifically dedicated to making and editing articles with citations to medieval scholars whose work is indebted to or develops feminist, queer, and critical race studies methods and theories. Making and editing biographical pages for Black medievalists and medievalists of colour, women and non-binary and queer medieval scholars, and artists whose work remakes the medieval is firmly within the MedievalWiki remit.

One thought on “Online Study Day: MedievalWiki Training Workshop and Social Editing Session, 29 October 2021, 13:30-15:00 BST”
It is a very interesting project. I have always been fascinated by the historical period of the Middle Ages. Projects like this will make Wikipedia an ever better place. Are you thinking of undertaking such initiatives for other historical periods as well?
