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 email@example.com.
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.
