I am thrilled to announce that I will be speaking at WikiConference 2016! The conference (as you may have guessed) is the fruit of the one and only Wikipedia, and brings together academics/scholars/very cool people who aim to make open source media accessible and awesome. This year’s conference is being held in San Diego, California.
I’ll be speaking on the topic of “How Wikipedia Can Remedy the Erasure of LGBTQ History.” My aim is to lay the groundwork for how open source media can provide a historical platform for groups who have been left out of traditional historical narratives. Fun, right?! My talk will take place on Monday, October 10th at 1:30 PM.
If you live in/around Southern California, I encourage you to check out the conference! It’s being held in the beautiful Balboa Park and literally every speaker sounds incredible. You can find more info HERE. If you can’t make it to the conference, I aim to have my talk recorded and other resources made available on or immediately after October 10th.
I couldn’t be more excited! ~
