Wikipedia, Outreach, and Activism, Oh My!
As part of my role at the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre (SRSC) I’ve recently been working with Canada’s History Society to organize a summer webinar series focused on Wikipedia, Outreach, and Activism in relation to Canada’s History. This four part webinar series will run in July/August and is focusing on how Wikipedia can be used for outreach and activism in relation to Canadian History.
This webinar series is suitable for GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) professionals, public historians, and those interested in Canadian history. No experience editing Wikipedia is necessary to participate. Folks can sign up to participate on the Canada History Society website. We have a great line up of experienced Wikipedia editors, community organizers, activists, and history folks who are going to be presenting as part of the series.
