ALA Annual Conference: Zine Cultures as Critical Resistance: A Hands-On Workshop to Build Community Engagement and Student Learning

At the 2018 American Libraries Association conference, a panel of zinesters, zine librarians and cultural scholars will convene a conversation addressing critical practices of literary and artistic resistance within zine cultures. Zines as a medium and platform are texts of subculture that resist dominant social hierarchies in favor of self-made and independently circulated ideas, distributed among community-based networks, and published outside of traditional publishing structures in many different parts of the world. 

This Literatures in English Section and European Studies Section co-sponsored program will include a hands-on zine workshop where attendees will create and contribute to a zine resources page that relates to critical scholarship, resistance, and political action in our everyday lives. This panel will also discuss European zine makers and legacies of political resistance and revolution through art and literature. The program is also cosponsored by the Zine Pavilion, a volunteer-run space in the conference exhibit hall featuring a small zine library as well as zinesters from the local community selling their creations. The zine pages created by attendees will be assembled together into a compilation zine that will be distributed during the annual conference at the Zine Pavilion.
