The Social Justice Zine Collection will be curated with a social justice activism lens. Specific topics that represent the scope of this collection are zine works:
● By members from ethnically and socially marginalized communities
● By members of gender nonconforming and LGBTQI communities
● By activists about activism, and history of social movements
● By current UCSB students and community members
Contact UCSB zine librarians with any questions or suggestions!
We look forward to talking with you!
Zines (pronounced "zeens" like "magazines") are do-it-yourself publications, made from collections of images and text, and distributed by the creator or zinester themselves. Zines are created out of love, not for profit, and are focused on a wide array of topics. Some types of zines are perzines (personal narrative zines), collaborative zines (with multiple zinesters/contributors), and fanzines (zines about a specific band, show, artist, scene, or creator).
