Zine Workshop: Breaking Barriers to Knowledge Sharing

In academia, knowledge is often shared via a scholarly publishing system that privileges formal peer review and journal or publisher prestige. Though valued by scholars, this publishing system can inhibit accessibility and perpetuate harm.

In Part I of this workshop, folks from Columbia University Libraries Digital Scholarship will discuss scholarly publishing and the business decisions behind it and we’ll chat about zines as an alternative way to contribute and share ideas with communities.

In Part II, we will experiment with making a zine about the research process, a paper topic you are writing for a course, or whatever you want!

Come de-stress with us! We will provide art supplies and collage materials, but encourage participants to bring their own, as well.
