Wednesday: Laura Nelson at QC Workshop

Queens College Sociology’s next virtual brownbag seminar is Wednesday 18th November during free hour, 12.15pm to ​1.30pm ET. 

Our guest is Laura Nelson (Northeastern University). She will be workshopping and discussing her latest project entitled, “​And the Rest Is History.” Using the Alexander Street Press collection Women and Social Movements in the United States, a corpus of over 120,000 documents produced by women’s movements over a four-hundred-year time frame (1600 – 2000), and a contemporary snapshot of Wikipedia, the largest and most popular general reference work on the Internet, her paper examines what ideas promoted by historical women’s movements are present in contemporary reference work. 

Members of the public can catch the talk and ask questions via YouTube Live.
