Are you doing research on multiple languages? Or English only?
Do you plan to use Wikipedia only?
If yes, there are not a very high number of dumps available from this
period (more before and more after) because of performance issues on the
dump generation process.
(I don't remember exactly, but we didn't have full enwiki dumps for maybe
years long around this period.)
If you cannot download from other sources, I have the
enwiki-20091128-pages-articles.xml and the
enwiki-20110115-pages-articles.xml files on my PC.

have not already done so.
Otherwise perhaps someone on the list will have a copy available.

I’m doing research to the existence of gender bias in Wikipedia texts
over time. To do this, I need old pages-articles.xml dumps. I am still
looking for dumps from 2009 and 2011-2013, does anyone know how I can get
one of these or does someone have one of these stored themselves?
Thanks in advance,
