Where: Fisher Library level 3 and SciTech exhibition space
Our new exhibition Bright sparks: women in struggle features feminist authors from the Library’s East Asian Collection, to commemorate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month.
We have chosen authors from three countries on which our East Asian Collection focuses, and selected important works written by them. All of them are/were fierce fighters for women’s liberation, whose activism and written works continue to inspire many around the world today.
Celebrate Women’s History Month by joining Sydney University Press and the University of Sydney Library for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon. Tuesday 28 March in Fisher Library, downstairs on Level 2, from 10am to 4pm. Please RSVP via Eventbrite: http://bit.ly/ww-17
We’ll be editing Wikipedia together to improve the representation of Australian women writers and researchers. No experience needed: there’ll be training sessions, cheat sheets, reference sources and roving Wiki experts on-hand – plus snacks!
You can participate all day or join us for just an hour or two, but our short training sessions for new Wikipedians will run at 10am, 12pm and 2pm. BYO device or use a library PC (bookings essential). We will provide reference works, suggestions for subjects to work on, and Wiki editing assistance. Just bring yourself, and your suggestions if you have them!
If you can’t make it to Fisher but would like to take part, we’ll be live-tweeting the event and would love you to join in at home. We will also have experts on hand to answer questions remotely!
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
