Art+Feminism is a global campaign that aims to improve the content of Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts. It also seeks to encourage more women to become active Wikipedia editors. Before our edit-a-thon on March 21, there will be a short information session on Thursday, February 28 between 5:00-6:00 in Woodruff Library 314. This info session is open to all members of the Emory community who would like to learn more about both the Art+Feminism event and Wikipedia in general.  This is a great opportunity to let us know if there are any specific women artists you think we should focus on for our upcoming edit-a-thon. Students will learn how they can gain valuable experience with research, public editing, and online communities. We would also love to meet with professors who may be interested in implementing Wikipedia-based projects in their courses or sharing information about the Art+Feminism Edit-a-thon with their classes. Our Information Sheet has more details about what a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon entails and how to participate: http://emorylib.info/AFinfo If you’re ready to sign up for the March 21 event, please RSVP here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EmoryAF2019 We look forward to seeing you soon! + Woodruff Library 314 Campus Events

07:30PM 07:30PM Spring Play: Ada and the Engine: School: Oxford College Department / Organization: Oxford College Building/Room: Tarbutton Performing Arts Center Cost: $5/person Contact Name: Danielle Dockery Contact Email: danielle.dockery@emory.edu Oxford College will present the play "Ada and the Engine" by Lauren Gunderson. Ada Byron is a curious young woman and mathematician who is being pushed for a prestigious marriage by her mother, who is hoping to repair their damaged reputation set by the late Lord Byron, Ada’s father. However, when Ada meets Charles Babbage, her interest is spiked. He seems like her perfect match – he’s a scholar and a dreamer, but their age difference prevents their friendship from becoming anything more. Despite Ada’s marriage to Lord Lovelace, Babbage’s model of the Analytical Engine creates a long-lasting partnership between the two scientists that causes their deplored love for each other to be kept aflame. The cast and technical crew, composed entirely of students, is directed by Nick Fesette. Jessie Rivers coordinates the sets, lighting, and sound. Tickets are $5 per person. Reserve your tickets at oxford.emory.edu/oxboxoffice. This play is presented as part of a special exhibition "Reviving Ada." Presented in conjunction with the Atlanta Science Festival, this interactive gallery features multi-media displays curated by Oxford students celebrating female contributions to math and science. The gallery will be Feb. 28-March 23 in Tarbutton Lobby. This is an Oxford Studies event. + Oxford College Campus Events
