Learning Objectives:

When scholars in the LGBTQIA+ communities who publish in open access journals are underrepresented in the 10th most visited site in the world, there is a problem. Their contributions to the scholarly conversation and impact become minimized, unrecognized, or misrepresented. That is a problem. The Open Access Wikipedia-edit-a-thon seeks to turn the tables on that dynamic with your help.

  • You will be able to identify misrepresentations and knowledge gaps that exist in Open Access LGBTQIA+ scholarship on the 10th most visited site in the world.
  • You will be able to think critically engage the information presented and what is missing in Open Access LGBTQIA+ scholarly works.
  • You will make visible represetations and histories of the LGBTQIA+ communities through critical editing Wikipedia Entries.
