  • In the interactive presentation Make Your Own Culture: Who Zine Creators Are, Why They Do What They Do and Why It Matters, Jacinta Bunnell (zine maker and artist) and Jenna Freedman (zine librarian and librarian zinester) will explore zine history, culture and their role in intersectional feminism.
    Self-intros?
  • DEFINITION
    Self-published and the publisher doesn’t answer to anyone
    Small, self-distributed print run
    Motivated by desire to express oneself rather than to make money
    Outside the mainstream
    Low budget
    No need for any special equipment or knowledge
    Portable
    An expression of Do It Yourself (DIY) culture
    Foster a community among their creators and readers
    No ISSN, no barcode, no paid ads
    HISTORY
    17th century pamphlets in England: Women and the pamphlet culture of revolutionary England, 1640-1660
    18th century revolutionary US—Common Sense
    20th century science fiction and soviet dissidents, beat poets and punk rockers, riot grrrl, art books
    TYPES
    Personal, political, fanzine, literary zine, mamazine, art zine, comix, DIY zine, compilation zine, split zine
    Barnard's zines are written by New York City and other urban women with an emphasis on zines by women of color. A woman's gender is self-defined. We also collect zines on feminism and femme identity by people of all genders. The zines are personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, third wave feminism, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, and other topics.
    WHO
    Young people: majority teens & early twenties
    Mothers of young children
    librarians!
    Writers and artists, bookmakers
    WHY
    Proof I exist
    Communicate/share
    Create/contribute
    E.g. Kelly Shortandqueer—feels an obligation to his community (FTM transgender people) to document his experience
    FROM The Long Tail, Self-publishers are
    Differently motivated, not differently skilled
    Amateur does not equal amateurish
    Low selling does not equal low quality
    WHY
    Control
    Only choice
  • ART
    Additional means of communication
    Collagechaos
    Cut & pastefree
    Juxtoposition, contrast
