    Howdy folks,
    I am currently designing and developing an online, graduate level course about zines for Johns Hopkins University. The course is part of our Master’s of Liberal Arts program and will run in summer 2019. I would love to interview a few zinesters for this project. If you’re interested, please reach out and we can discuss it further. I should be up front and note that I can’t offer much in the way of compensation for your time, but I can try to work something out. Feel free to share if you think you might know someone who would be interested!

    Here’s the course description, if you’re interested:
    Self-published zines (pronounced ZEENs) – defined by Stephen Duncombe, are “noncommercial, nonprofessional, small-circulation magazines which their creators produce, publish, and distribute by themselves.” Zines have been a staple of underground culture and subculture for decades, tracing their history to 1930’s science fiction fandom, and encompassing topics from punk rock to critical race studies. This course offers an in-depth look at the origins and proliferation of DIY (do-it-yourself) zine culture and features guest interviews with zine-writers (“zinesters”). In addition to studying zines through the lens of history, art, critical theory, and cultural studies, students will design and produce zines of their own and share them online in a digital format.

    I wouldn’t mind being interviewed if it’s going to help you out. I wouldn’t need to be paid or anything, so you don’t have to worry about that. Just happy to help people in the community out!
