Editing Ourselves into History: A Live Art and Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

An article related to LADA’s ‘Live Art and Feminism Edit-a-thon‘ entitled Editing Ourselves into History: A Live Art and Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon has been published online and is now available to read on the Contemporary Theatre Review website. 

The article includes a focus on The Event written by Eleanor Roberts and Lois Weaver, a conversation between Eleanor Roberts and Alex Eisenberg On the Web as a Tool for Power, a written response from Jen Harvie entitled Feminist Writing Is Essential plus a Do it Yourself! Wikipedia resource kit

The Edit-a-thon was part of Restock, Rethink, Reflect Three: on Live Art and Feminism.  Part of this project consisted of research into ‘Live Art, Feminism, and the Archive’ in collaboration with Lois Weaver, QMUL. Supported by Creativeworks London, as part of a project to enhance LADA’s Study Room holdings on Live Art and Feminism.
