We are deeply saddened to relay the passing of Adrianne Wadewitz (@wadewitz), who was scheduled to teach our Wikipedia for Humanists and Cultural Heritage Professionals course at HILT 2014. Adrianne was a passionate, vibrant contributor to our community. Her work is a testament to the possibilities and potential of digital humanities writ large. Our deepest sympathies are extended to her family and friends. We leave her instructor biography and course description live on this site so that others may familiarize themselves with her work. You can contribute your own remembrances via the ongoing Remembering Adrianne Wadewitz thread at HASTAC.org or by taking a moment to contribute by writing a Wikipedia commit in her memory.

Schedule is subject to change.
