Inspired by two recuperative digital archives at Northeastern, the Early Caribbean Digital Archive and the Women Writers Project, this event seeks to revise Wikipedia articles which extend romantic and orientalist representations of colonial history and literature. Our goal is to neutralize the heightened romantic and sentimental language used on Wikipedia to represent historical figures, paying special attention to representations of marginalized persons such as women, free and enslaved people of color, and indigenous persons. We will focus on Wikipedia articles on historical persons, travel narratives, natural histories, captivity narratives, and slave narratives.

Two members of the Digital Feminist Commons, Liz Polcha and Nicole Infanta Keller, shared the experience they had building a digital feminist community at Northeastern. At the conference, they were able to pose the following questions to a larger digital humanities community: How are faculty, graduate students, and staff collaborating together on digital humanities feminist research in the Boston and New England area? How can the digital humanities welcome feminist researchers who may be unfamiliar with digital methods? How does labor affect collaboration in digital humanities feminist research?
