Women's Classical Committee Colloquium 2020

The Women’s Classical Committee UK is proud to announce the first #WCCWiki Colloquium, hosted by the Institute of Classical Studies, University of London.

#WCCWiki is a crowd-sourced initiative that aims to increase the representation of women classicists (very broadly conceived) on Wikipedia. Since we began in 2016, we have edited or created more than 450 Wikipedia pages for women classicists.

The event is an opportunity to bring the #WCCWiki community together, and to reach out to those interested in learning more about women classicists online and why that’s important. We will share experiences and resources for editing, and develop future objectives for #WCCWiki.

The event is free and open to all. It will begin at 10am and finish at 3.15pm (GMT). It includes five pre-recorded talks followed by live discussion, and a technical how-to? with Wikipedia discussion – bring your queries!For those who may feel that their participation is compromised by caring or additional responsibilities,

The event will include regular breaks, and participants are welcome to attend some or all of the event.This event is free but places are limited and booking is essential (see here: https://ics.sas.ac.uk/events/event/22700).

Organised on behalf of the WCC UK by Richard Nevell, Emma Bridges, Katie Shields, Anna Judson, Victoria Leonard, Kate Cook, and Adam Parker
