- Movie Woman Art Revolution / return presentation feedback
- Class evaluation forms
Before today, you should have…
Started wikipedia page or expand a page. Instructions from our in-class ppt in a pdf uploaded here: http://joelledietrick.com/teaching/history_art_tech/ppt/wikipedia-directions.pdf
Post link to your female new media in response to this post.
A few more instructions (have been asked about how extensive to make):
- I personally would collaborate with two other people on a page.
- See Barbara Kruger as an example. For this class, I would expect the page to have at least the intro paragraph, an infobox and artwork with at least three sources. If collaborating with someone else, they could complete 3 more paragraphs (i.e. books on the artist, exhibitions, and awards). All additions need cited.
- Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Kruger
- Infobox for artist template: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox_artist
- Infobox for artwork template: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox_artwork
- Before you get started, also wise to skim through guidelines to makes sure the person is notable enough. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability
Also respond to our readings on the gender gap in tech with the usual quote, comment, question, link structure.
Here’s the readings (the first one is actually a podcast and so good!):
• “How One College Is Closing The Computer Science Gender Gap.” Narr. Wendy Kaufman. All Things Considered. NPR. Natl. Public Radio. Web. 01 May 2013.
• Rüst, Annina. “Feminist Internet Software.” Tracing New/Media/Feminisms. New York: New Media Caucus. 2013.
• Tech Feminist pioneers, like Laurie Anderson, Joan Jonas, Martha Rosler, Lynn Hershman, Cheryl Donnegan (3:01), Annina Rüst, Wack, Blyth Hazen, Helen Mayer Harrison, Jennifer Hall, Monika Fleischmann, Char Davies, Rebeca Méndez, Diana Thater, Jennifer Steinkamp, MoMA on Modern Women
More about this coming Thursday’s Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon at Strozier:
- By next time (by Tuesday 4/15 at latest), sign up for wikipedia editing, pick 1 female new media artist that you want to write about on April 17 at Strozier (event details here:https://www.facebook.com/events/225015401026458/ ) and post a page with 3 sources. Alternatively, you can expand an existing page (many to fix) by adding 3 inline citations.
