Join us for an online symposium on Friday 9th September 2022, 5:00am-2:30pm US EST with formal and informal talks, presentations and sharing, and a workshop.

We want to:

  • Promote zines studies as a transdisciplinary field

  • Advance a particular agenda for zines research

  • Provide a space for building connections with zines researchers across the globe

  • Bridge the gaps between creative, professional and academic practices

Register here for the Symposium.

Sign up here for the workshop.

You might also be interested in our in-person/online zine jam the following day - a chance to explore some of the same questions and themes of the symposium through zine making. Find out more about the zine jam and sign up here.

Barnard Zine Library Curator Jenna Freedman's presentation will be in session 4, 11:45am-1:15pm:

Dissecting a Zine Corpus

In an attempt to reach scholars, particularly those focused on digital projects, who may be unfamiliar with zines, Barnard Zine Library collaborators have begun building a collection of zine texts--a zine corpus, suitable for digital humanities endeavors. I will share our thoughts and processes and invite discussion on the ethics of working with digital/digitized zines when the original content becomes recontextualized in a larger body of works.
