Politics and Zines: Create Your Own Zine Workshop

A zine, short for “magazine,” is a small-circulation self-published work of images and text, usually reproduced on a copy machine. Zines have been a significant medium of communication for fan clubs, artists, and subcultures alike, presenting the opportunity of self-expression for anyone who has access to scissors and paper. Additionally, zines provide an accessible avenue for activists to express personal and political views.

Troubling Performance Symposium

This one-day symposium will consider representations of race in performance in connection to the work of visual artist Kara Walker, whose exhibition “Back of Hand” will be on display at the Athenaeum. Taking Walker as a departure point, invited speakers will address themes related to rethinking Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, satire, stereotypes, gender, and identity.
