, you will construct a zine regarding any of the inequalities we discussed in the last third of the class, as well as interventions for this inequality.
What is a Zine?
A zine, from magazine, is a short, independent publication, often concerning a social issue or problem. In the past, zines have been used for political information and organizing, disseminating art and poetry, or telling short but important stories.
For your final zine project, you will identify a social issue or problem we have discussed in the last third of the class, as well as a social movement that seeks to address the issue. The movement can be local, national, or international, and does not need to be an “official” organization. You may, for example, highlight a local community member who provides food and shelter for other community members, a local or state-specific organization like the Chicago Abortion Fund, a national organization like SisterSong or NARAL, or even an international movement like movements addressing climate change or #MeToo.
In your zine, you should:
– Identify the social issue your zine addresses
– Describe how this issue is related to gender
– Identify a social movement or movements that addresses the inequality
– Identify or propose actions that address the inequality that most people could do
As zines are often a mixed-media artistic project, you may include illustrations, images, poetry, etc. in your zine, though it is also okay if your zine is only text – however your zine must include at least some text. If you use someone else’s art or photography, please credit this person in your zine (and ask their permission for use if you plan to distribute your zine outside of class).
Your final zine should be at least 8 pages (not including the front and back covers), and you should cite at least two assigned readings from class (or the film if you wish). These citations need not be in-depth – just demonstrate you understand the connection between course material and your zine subject. You may include outside sources as well, especially if your zine covers an issue we have not discussed, like sports or sexual violence.
Argue a thesis supported by credible, peer reviewed academic sources. The goal of this paper is to convince, not just inform, your reader of a point you are trying to make. The essay should have a clearly recognizable thesis in the form of an argument that a reasonable reader could disagree with.
The main point of the essay should be that toxic masculinity effects young boys in a bad way, and sets a bad example.
