RodCon: Rod Library's Mini Comic Book Convention

RODCON2020

Projects

Check out these projects happening at RodCon this year.

Diversity in Comics Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon                                                                  

Join us during RodCon for this edit-a-thon on diversity in comics. While Wikipedia is particularly strong in its coverage of popular culture, content about women and minoritized groups lags behind more dominant narratives even within articles about comics, television and film, and all things geekery. Content is skewed by a lack of diversity amongst its editorship. This fact represents an alarming absence in the world's most-used repository of shared knowledge.

Let's do something to change that. Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to comics and geek culture in order to expand and diversify free, quality information on the internet. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and light refreshments. Bring your ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
