Zines and Research

We want to feature links to research that uses zines or is disseminated through zines. If you have work to share this way, please email us! For now, here are a few great projects to start off this page.

FRESH VOICES was a 6-week online exploration into participatory research with guest speakers and workshops in a multi-accessible format hosted by Eva A Sprecher and Eleanor Armstrong through UCL. It featured a diverse range of projects and speakers that you can still access at the Fresh Voices project site, a response zine by Sean Curran that you can download, and these workshops inspired this page of the zine fest website!

“Equity, Exclusion & Everyday Science Learning: The Experiences of Minoritised Groups” is by Emily Dawson, with a book, article, free zine (created for Emily by Sophie Wang) and links page here.

We need to do a shoutout to the excellent journalist and outstanding zinester Malaka Gharib at NPR who edits the Goats and Soda section and frequently peppers it with excellent zines on social issues, science and public health topics.

Mixed Bill is a comedy and gender research network currently made up of interdisciplinary researchers from Sheffield Hallam, Salford, Birmingham City and Manchester Metropolitan Universities. Their 2018 symposium featured a response zine by speakers and attendees that was designed and collated by Sheffield Zine Fest co-host Chella Quint
