Yes, please: How zines about consent can address power in the classroom

Zines offer personal, ethnographic perspectives on topics that are often ignored or outright excluded in mainstream academic publishing. In this short session, we will demonstrate how concepts often explored in zines can inform our classroom practices. Using zines from the Barnard Library Zine Collection, we will analyze how some zines have covered the topic of consent, especially in a sex education context, and draw connections to larger pedagogical considerations. This analysis will serve as one example of a concept made more accessible and relevant because of the unique lens provided by the zines in which are covered. In doing so, we hope to illustrate how zines help us as educators understand the impact of power in classroom practices that may otherwise be overlooked. This session will be followed by a zine workshop.
