Personality Lab with Zines

In October, Professor Chana Etengoff’s Psychology of Personality class, in collaboration with Zine Librarian Jenna Freedman, read a selection of zines from the Barnard Zine Library as an exercise in analyzing personality through text and images. The experiment, entitled Zine Lab: An Introduction to Mixed-Methods, asked students to partner up and organize a total of 25 zines into the pre-defined attachment style coding categories of Secure, Anxious, Avoidant, Ambivalent/Resistant, and Disorganized.
