About this event

The Dublin History Research Network (DHRN) is delighted to announce a one-day event ‘Writing the City of Literature: Dublin Wiki Hackathon’ run in collaboration with the Trinity Long Room Hub and Wikimedia Commons and sponsored by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and Dublin City Council.

This one-day, in-person and online, facilitated hackathon will bring together fiction lovers and those interested in Dublin’s past to live-edit and write Wikipedia entries about the novels that are set in or were written in, the city and county of Dublin. We will kick off the morning with a workshop from Rebecca O’Neill of Wikimedia Community Ireland who will guide the participants through selecting, editing and writing entries for Wikipedia.

Rebecca and the Dublin History Research Coordinators Ciarán Wallace, Katy Milligan and Lisa Marie Griffith will be on hand throughout the day to help participants write entries and to share resources and knowledge about the city.

• *Participants will need to bring a laptop or device along to get involved in making and editing entries*
