Speaking Up & Out: Feminist Zine Fair
1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
Come talk to Intro Women's Studies 131 students about the feminist zines they created for the course.
Zines are traditionally small-circulation publications varying in length, format, and subject matter. One of the most distinguishing characteristics of a zine is its DIY aesthetic: zines are often handwritten or made up of words and images literally cut and pasted together, and then photocopied. Zine content typically falls outside the norms of mainstream media and most people creating them don’t have access to large-scale publishing, which means basically anyone can make one.
