Márcio Sno, Brazilian documentary film maker recently launched a new documentary, "Last Century Zinesters," in January this year. Check it out on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/22319370!

This documentary is aimed at showcasing Brazilian zine-making before the advent of computers and the internet. "Last Century Zinesters" includes interviews with 21 zine creators that worked in the days of typewriters and cut and paste. You can expect to enjoy the '80s and '90s flashbacks that this film provides, and get an in-depth look at the people behind the pages.

Márcio is also recording material for the second chapter of this documentary, possibly to be released at the end of this year. If you would like to be involved, contact Márcio Sno at marciosno@hotmail.com and check out the blog http://marciosno.blogspot.com

First: the background. I am a blogger for Refuse the Silence, an organization headed by the great Morgane Richardson and the people that hosted this event. And, because I am a huge nerd, I got giddy at the idea of seeing some of my favorite bloggers speak at this event about something I really care about: race in the feminist movement.

(The picture is of me and Latoya Peterson (editor of Racialicious) after the event! Don't we look chilled out?)

Wallflower started out as a Geocities webzine, whatever "webzine" meant to the author, Kristina Aikens, in 1997. Check out the Wayback Machine's capture of Kristina's site. Ah, youth (the World Wide Web's, that is)!

Since there are no comments allowed on this blog or anywhere on the Barnard website, I posted on LiveJournal so I could get your feedback on a proposed collection development policy change.

I'm working my way through our cataloging backlog, which I hope to finish by the end of the semester. This weekend, I'm tackling zines starting with the letter U. Much can be gleaned about girl and feminist culture from zines, even from just their titles, so I thought I'd list the titles of the U zines I'm working on. For your delectation and edification:
