Wikipedia Art & Art History Edit-a-thon


Wikipedia Art & Art History Edit-a-thon

@ Zabar Art Library, Room 1608 HN

The Zabar Art Library will host its first ever Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Thursday, October 27 from 1-5pm

Wikipedia edit-a-thons provide those new to Wikipedia with the opportunity to learn to edit Wikipedia articles.

The edit-a-thon is focused on editing Art & Art History articles. 

All Hunter students, faculty and staff are invited to attend. 

The edit-a-thon will provide participants with the opportunity to help improve the encyclopedia by editing articles related to art. A limited number of laptops will be available for students use. Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops.



The following sentence appears in the first paragraph of the Wikipedia entry for Arturo Alfonso Schomburg: Over the years, he collected literature, art, slave narratives, and other materials of African history, which was purchased to become the basis of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, named in his honor, at the New York Public Library (NYPL) branch in Harlem. As written, it commodifies "African history" as subject, in its entirety, to purchase. This sentence should be revised grammatically to reflect that what was purchased were "materials." Thank you
