What Zines Are Like

Skim a zine for three minutes and then switch, for three rounds. You will not be able to read these zines in their entirety.

[Content: curse words, sexuality, poverty, violence]

Round 1

Round 2

Round 3

  1. Spring - Ungrateful Black - White Girl
  2. Summer - Our Stories Matter
  3. Fall - Asian American Feminist Antibodies
  4. Winter - Sillywish #5

In breakout rooms discuss for five minutes:

  • Did one or more of the zines have an impact on you? On the creator?
  • How do the zines document their time?
  • How do the zine images complement or complicate the text?

Group share.
