We are delighted to share that the Gender & Geography Bibliography Hackathon will take place November 15th-21st, 2015, as part of Geography Awareness Week. A hackathon is a time when a group of people come together to work on a digital project, usually by coding and creating content for an app or website. Skills and time involved are minimal. The outcome is a profound source of public knowledge across fields, as well as training in the citation management software, Zotero.
The organizers eagerly seeking faculty, students, staff, & citizens who want to take part any time and anywhere during the week of 11/15 to add to and edit the now 3,000+ large online, citation database of feminist geographic sources. The organizers are particularly keen to have folks contribute books, book chapters, and multimedia citations from across disciplines, and they are extremely eager for contributions of non-English materials. Folks can work on their own or form their own groups. Sign up here to participate: http://bit.ly/GGBhack_signup. All of the detailed directions based on the summary below can be found here.
