For many students, they do not see themselves represented in academia – from the assignments they read to those they create. Zines allow students to become cultural producers of information by combining research and scholarship with their lived experiences. As a bridge, zines bring students closer to their research allowing them to embody what they have learned. From mini-zines completed in one class setting to semester long projects, zines are the perfect tool to incorporate social justice, research techniques, and experiential knowledge into student assignments and projects. Join this webinar to learn how.
This webinar will be facilitated by Dawn Stahura. Dawn works as a Research and Instruction Librarian for the Sciences and Healthcare Sciences as well as the Zine Librarian at Salem State University in Salem, Massachusetts, USA. Dawn is heavily involved in the zine community publishing her own zines, teaching workshops, giving presentations, and lectures on the power of zines and personal narratives.
