Why use zines in your research?

Here are some reasons why zines should be considered in student research:

1. Zines are primary sources.

2. Zines are often written by marginalized and oppressed voices. These are the voices oftentimes missing from standard scholarly resources.

3. Zines humanize our research. When students read zines on their topics, they get to really hear the methodologies section that they mostly skip over (because it's boring).

4. Zines allow students to really think about their topics and how it relates to not only their own lives but the lives of others. Research and education should be about liberating others. Zines are just one way this can happen.
