PoNJA-GenKon and Asia Art Archive in America are pleased to announce the 2021 PoNJA Wikipedia Initiative (PWI) Fellows, consisting of nine Graduate Fellows and three Undergraduate Fellows. The PWI Editorial Committee received an overwhelming number of highly qualified applications for the Fellowship, which made our final selection process very competitive. (December 23, 2020)

The 2021 Fellows will work to build a public knowledge base of modern and contemporary Japanese art by adding or improving articles on Wikipedia. We are also planning to host additional public edit-a-thons throughout 2021 to build on this initiative and create an opportunity for the Fellows to share their PWI contributions with the broader community.
