Passionate about representation? Use your research skills to fill in gaps in the wiki-sphere! Join us for Queering the Record, a research event to gather sources on LGBTQIA+ related issues.

Tobin Low and Kathy Tu, hosts of the acclaimed podcast Nancy, are coming to Austin for SXSW, and they’re hosting an LGBTQIA+ Wikipedia edit-a-thon as one of their SXSW events. UT librarians, students, and researchers and are partnering with the Nancy team to host this pre-SXSW event on campus!

At Queering the Record, we’ll be doing background research to identify pages that need updating and find quality, verified sources. The Nancy team, along with other SXSW attendees, will use this research to create and update Wikipedia pages during the edit-a-thon the following week. 

Pizza and coffee will provided! Drop by as you have time!
