SPA 376 Survey of Latin American Literature: Zines & Social Movements

Z I N E  H E L P  &   G U I D E :


Hello Amazing SPA 376 Students!

We are going to be exploring zines as texts and physical objects, zine cultures and subcultures, and how the material culture of zines is used as an organizing tool in social movements and political resistance.  We will focus on how these questions and resources relate to Latin American Literature, and contemporary Latinx cultures, and of course, your own research interests and desires.

Learning goals for today (February 1, 2018)  are that you will be able to:

  • define what zines are,
  • know what zines we have in the New Paltz Zine Library,
  • and how you can read and access to the zines in our library.
  • It’s also important to be able to find and access zine collections beyond New Paltz, such as those available online or in other libraries.

The following short blog pieces are a good introduction to Latinx zine cultures.

If you want to ask me a question outside of class, please be in touch at willougl at new paltz dot edu. We can meet for a zine consultation for help in making your zine, or doing research for this or other assignments.
