write your own individual 1000-word paper applying a concept from the
course readings to your experience being a Wikipedia editor, and/or to your
experience in the archive, in the context of your own your prior knowledge.
You can use “I.” You are demonstrating your ability to apply a concept, so it
isn’t simple reaction to the visit and project, but a coherent argument about
you in particular visiting a scholarly space and performing a scholarly act. So,
I’m looking for an understanding of a concept by applying it, and I’m looking
for a critically self-reflective understanding of your place in this kind of
knowledge preservation and production
1. Archive experience, what it was like, whether I liked the assignment
The Archive experience was quite interesting because I never been part of or
heard of an archive in the past and this was my first archive attended. I expected
the archive to have an individual talk about the Candian federation University
Woman in a presentation style and myself and partner just take notes from the
presentation. But it was completely the opposite from what I thought it was
going to be. When me and my partner first arrived, it was straight forward we
were given the documents of CFWU history. Also, I think the archive was
important for me because it increased my knowledge and understanding
towards women’s history.
2. how we got info for the project, how important it is to get old
information into curriculum, or bring awareness to show history of our
country
I feel it is very important to get old information on history into the curriculum and
bring awareness to show the history of our country for the younger generations like
myself and peers. Furthermore, it is important to bring old information into
curriculum because if students of the younger generation can study it and
understand it we can learn new things from history.
3. Talk about CFUW, what I think of it, why I think it important
In the past I had never heard of the CFUW, and after doing it and learning,
understanding it as a topic for the assignment I wish I was introduced to it
before because I feel like the CFUW is a great organization that supports
various things works to improve the status of women and to promote human
rights, public education, social justice, and peace. Furthermore, I think CFUW
Clubs are involved in community outreach on such initiatives as working to
prevent violence against women, child poverty, early learning and child care.
4. Now that you have visited the archive and done your task, how does it
compare to your prior assumptions?
To be quite honest I thought the archive was not going to useful or interesting at
all aside from the assignment, personally I learned various things from history
in the archive including how an archive feels like to be a part of, how most of
the historical information if not all are from primary source documents.
5. What was easy and what was difficult about your task?
The easy part of the task was to gather all information from the old CFUW
documents. The difficult part was to organize the information and try to figure
out how to insert it to the Wikipedia page without getting it deleted by others.
Also, it was difficult at first because me and my partner were never introduced
to the Canadian federation of university women before, so this research topic
was very new to us and was hard to specifically understand what they stand for
and do.
6. What general or specific insights did you gain about archival work,
First Wave or Second Wave feminism, women’s rights, identity, or
women’s history?
Women’s Rights
7. What concept or concepts from the textbook might connect with your
activity?
The purpose of the Intellectual Response Paper (IRP) assignments is to take us out of
the classroom into places where we can experience more concretely the principles,
contexts, and materials we normally study in textbooks, and then deepen our
understanding of such experience through critical reflection. The IRPs are linked to all
four of our course intended learning outcomes (see course outline).
IRP #1: Archives and Special Collections at the Dana Porter Library
From Sept 20 – Oct 1 at your appointed time (sign up online), visit the Archives to:
a) read material collected on a figure from our Wikipedia project
b) In pairs (either predetermined, or whoever else signs up for your chosen
figure), identify information to be incorporated into a Wikipedia entry
Sign up in advance for our Wikipedia project online in order to pick a figure to work
on, and in order to complete the milestones you find listed there. After finishing the
Wikipedia project with your partner by Oct 17-24, write your own individual 1000word paper applying a concept from the course readings to your experience being
a Wikipedia editor, and/or to your experience in the archive, in the context of your
own your prior knowledge. You can use “I.” You are demonstrating your ability to
apply a concept, so it isn’t simple reaction to the visit and project, but a coherent
argument about you in particular visiting a scholarly space and performing a
scholarly act. So, I’m looking for an understanding of a concept by applying it, and
I’m looking for a critically self-reflective understanding of your place in this kind
of knowledge preservation and production. There are several ways to do well at
this, so there is no single model to follow. Ask if you are uncertain about your plan.
Further details
There will be a drop box for you to submit your IRP. Wikipedia projects are tracked
in our project Dashboard on their site. Overall, this assignment is worth 25 marks:
The Wikipedia project (typically in pairs) is worth 15 marks
• 5 for assignment milestones (individual)
• 5 for doing the content updates (pairs, but tracked individually)
• 5 for the accuracy and quality of the content updates (pairs)
The IRP (individual) is worth 10 marks (see the rubric on LEARN).
If you feel your paired contributions are unequal and cannot resolve this together,
contact the professor before the due date if possible.
The Wikipedia project is due between Oct 17 and Oct 24; the IRP is due Oct 31.
You have a 24-hour grace period for the IRP in case of technical glitches, life getting
in the way, and so on. I’ll set the drop box so you can submit the IRP after Oct 31,
and we will assess no penalty until after Nov 1 at 11:59 p.m. with a 10% total
penalty any time after that up to the end of classes. If you find yourself behind in this
or other courses, reach out to professors and advisors as soon as you are able to!
Field Notes toward your IRP 1
It is not necessary to hand these in, but language from your answers might become
part of your IRP!
Before your visit:
Have you attended any archives in the past?
When you think of the word “archive,” what comes to mind? (sights, smells, sounds,

Porter library for this purpose?
After your visit:
Now that you have visited the archive and done your task, how does it compare to
