How to fix history using Wikipedia – a Black History Month event

Friday 8 October 2021

Two hour session on how to spread more inclusive history through Wikipedia. You can join either online or in person.


Wikipedia is among the 10 most viewed sites in the world. But there has been long standing criticism of Wikipedia in the way that it mainly tells the “white” history. Wikipedia is a community created website, so it is up to the community to contribute. Why not join the 280.000 editors world wide and make a difference?

In this workshop we will teach you how to edit and partake in the ongoing development of how histories is described on Wikipedia. Our particular focus is the racist history of sciences such as epidemiology and statistics. Below are some suggested readings and Wikipedia pages to edit – but feel free to bring your own ideas!
