WikiD - Women in Wikipedia Discussion and Resources Q&A

Lori Brown and Justine Clark will discuss their collaboration on wikiD, the effort to write more women architects into Wikipedia. They will discuss where the idea and inspiration behind the project came from, how it began, its evolution into an international effort spearheaded between groups in New York, Melbourne and Berlin as well as the impacts wikiD has had thus far.

Lori Brown's creative practice examines the relationships between architecture and social justice. She is the author of Contested Spaces: Abortion Clinics, Women's Shelters and Hospitals and the editor of Feminist Practices: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Women in Architecture. She is the co-founder and leads ArchiteXX, a women and architecture group working to bridge the academy and practice in New York City. She is Professor of Architecture at Syracuse University.

Justine Clark is an architectural editor, writer, researcher and critic. She is a co-founder of the advocacy organisation Parlour: women, equity, architecture and a former editor of Architecture Australia, the journal of the Australian Institute of Architects. Justine is an active participant in public discussions of architecture. Her work has won awards for architecture in the media and her broader contribution to the profession was recognised in 2015 with the Marion Mahony Prize. Her writing appears on both scholarly and professional press and she is co-author, with Dr Paul Walker, of Looking for the Local: Architecture and the New Zealand Modern (2000). Justine is an honorary senior research fellow at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
