Zines in the academy: using self-published, DIY publications for research
This workshop will introduce you to zines - the self-publishing phenomenon. We will investigate zines as a democratic medium, as information objects, and as a mode of personal expression. We will discuss their history, their place in academic research, the ethical questions that are raised by diving into the medium, and look at a range of examples. We will also show participants where they can be found throughout the 5 Colleges, Pioneer Valley, and beyond.
