About Me edit

 My name is Ximena Gallardo C. and in my day job I teach English literature and composition at LaGuardia Community College. I am particularly interested in science-fiction film and print, and gender and race issues. I have been a Wikipedian since 2012, and 2020 marked my first year as a member of Wikibooks and Wikisource. Here in Wikibooks my two long-term projects are Perspectives in Digital Literacy and Themes in Literature.

In terms of Wikipedia, my main project is the creation and expansion of the entries for American speculative author Octavia E. Butler. Some of this work is being completed by LaGuardia undergraduates, some by Butler scholars during edit-a-thons. I also co-coordinate the La Guardia and Wagner Archives GLAM, a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of New York City, and particularly exploring unique archival holdings such as the Edward I. Koch Collection. My most recent project is the LaGuardia Translatathon Series.
