Race, Science, and Reproductive Justice: Zines

This guide, made by zine librarian Jenna Freedman, accompanies Cecelia Lie-Spahn's First Year Seminar held at Barnard College, spring 2022

Read and Discuss

Introduce the zine you read in a breakout group for five minutes:

  • How did you select your zine?
  • Did the zine have an impact on you, and why or why not?
  • What does the zine say about its creator--directly or indirectly?
  • Why do you think they chose a zine as their medium?
  • Are there graphics in the zine? Handwriting? Collages? Do they complement or complicate the text? (Think about the Piepmeier reading)
  • How does the zine make you feel?

Group show & tell.
