June Edit-a-thon to improve ‘African Literature’ page in Wikipedia

Africa in Words author Stephanie Santana writes:

On June 4 at the upcoming African Literature Association (ALA) conference at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, Africa in Words will be hosting a ‘Wikithon’ to improve the ‘African Literature’ Wikipedia page. During a Wikithon (also often called an ‘Edit-a-thon‘), people come together to edit a particular Wikipedia page or topic. The ALA conference theme this year is ‘African Futures and Beyond: Visions in Transition,’ and this Wikithon/panel will provide a unique, hands-on opportunity to create open access resources and to think about the future of knowledge production in African literary studies.

With thanks to the Africainwords blog.
