Project Summary[edit]

My university department (History) has asked me to document the work I have done editing Wikipedia articles, and the articles that were created based on my work. Several of these pages had their headings changed, or were integrated into new pages with different headings, then deleted. I would like to be able to view and print these deleted pages.


I would like to print out old pages whose names were changed, or which were subsumed as parts of other pages. For instance, on 8 September 2010 the Reception history page was reduced (I presume) and made into a section of the Reception theory page.


no plans at this point

Wikimedia Policies, Ethics, and Human Subjects Protection[edit]

none needed

Benefits for the Wikimedia community[edit]

I may be able to show on case examples how articles develop over time, and headings change


this is a short-term project, but I would like to be able to repeat the procedure if I find additional pages that have been deleted.


no external funding
