Jude Vachon is compiling a zine called "Dude. You. Suck." It's a zine "where women can share romantic/sexual experiences with men where they felt treated poorly" in a way that is related to gender and sexism issues. She wants to set up a dialogue between women about experiences with men in an era where men's and women's responsibilities are still not shared equally and focus on the communication gap between men and women.

For Zine Library Day, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is creating the world's largest zine, measuring out at 6 feet by 8 feet.

University of Cambridge grad student Stefanie Carter is looking for authors and readers of Riot Grrrl zines to be interviewed for her research thesis. In her work, she hopes to emphisize the importance of zines and networks of zinesters to the Riot Grrrl movement overall.

Because Stefanie is located in the UK, the interview will be recorded over the phone, email, or Skype for US residents. The interview will be approximately one-hour long and will consist of pre-composed questions as well as questions that arise during conversation.

 

If you would be interested in participating in this interview or would like to recieve more information, contact Stefanie at stefanielcarter@gmail.com.

NYC-based feminist collective For The Birds is compiling a zine about grief and loss for its third issue of "The Worst."  For the Birds is looking for your experiences with grief and loss that may include but are not limited to those dealing with multiple losses, oppression and loss, community movements to address and process loss, children and loss, things that help you feel better while grieving, gender roles and grief expression, how to support people who are grieving, and treatment of grief by the mental health industry vs. radical mental health movements

Send relevant submissions to theworstzine@gmail.com by August 1st.

More information.

From an email exchange with the researcher, Michelle Pronovost:

I am a Masters student in Fashion and Textile Studies at FIT and have just finished an independent study of the Riot Grrrl Archives at NYU. I am writing my thesis about riot grrrl fashion covering the late 80s to mid/late 90s. I am interested in talking with women who were involved with the movement and how they used dress or other body adornments to further the political and/or feminist views they were stating through their music, in zines, in their communities. This is a largely unexplored area of subcultural style among women and I hope to expand the body of literature on this topic. Please contact me at michelle.pronovost@gmail. if you are willing to participate in a phone interview or email questionnaire.
