[https://wwp.northeastern.edu/review/ "Women Writers in Review"] is an initiative of the Digital Scholarship Group at Northeastern University where I serve as [https://dsg.neu.edu/welcome-wikipedia-visiting-scholar/ Visiting Scholar]. The initiative encompasses pre-20th-century English language women writers, their works, reviews of their works, and scoring of the reviews (P444) by academics. The initiative supports research into the transatlantic reception and readership of early texts by women ("cultures of reception"). Using structured data to model the work enables analysis, identification, and depiction of gender bias over a particular time period (pre-XX-c) and language (English). In consultation with Amanda Rust (Northeastern University), Will Kent (Wiki Education Foundation), Lane Rasberry (University of Virginia), and Mike Peel (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias), I've developed a Wikidata model to depict this research. The session will include a visualization of the data and findings, approaches to developing the model, and discussion as to how this model might be used by other academic institutions to contribute their unique data sets to Wikidata. While this presentation focuses on Wikidata, it also relates to WikiCite.
