Is Motherhood & Design that Scary : Giving Birth to a Wikipedia Class Kicking and Screaming


Community Initiatives, Education, Equity / Inclusion / Community Health, GLAM / Heritage / Culture, Research / Science / Medicine, Credibility / Mis and Disinformation (WikiCred)

Type of session:

Lightning talk


In the Fall of 2022 the Massachusetts College of Art and Design's museum MAAM debuted a show "Designing Motherhood" curated by Juliana Barton and Michelle Millar Fisher based on the MIT published book Designing Motherhood Amber Winick and Michelle Millar Fisher. I collaborated with design history professor Ezra Shales to bring "care" oriented design with Wikipedia based training to our students. The semester long class proved challenging for all. The lightening talk will be an overview of successes and pitfalls.
