Girls, Zines, and Their Travels: Imagining Lives, Crafting Archives for a New Century [Rutgers Libraries]

March 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This year Professor Janice Radway will deliver the 36th annual Louis Faugères Bishop Lecture online on March 10, 2022 at 6:00 p.m.

Janice Radway is the Walter Dill Scott Professor of Communication Studies and a professor of American studies and gender studies within the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences at Northwestern University. Radway is widely known for her scholarship on readers, reading, books, and the history of middlebrow culture.

Her topic is “Girls, Zines, and Their Travels: Imagining Lives, Crafting Archives for a New Century.”

A zine, short for magazine or “fanzine,” is a non-commercial, handmade, self-published resource often devoted to unique or specialized subject matter. Rutgers Special Collections and University Archives collects New Jersey and regional zines, many of which were done by women and girls.

The finding aid can be viewed at

For more information on zines and to view some examples from the Rutgers collection, see https://libguides.rutgers.edu/RULcreate/zines

Also, the Rutgers Art Library is currently hosting Take it with you, an exhibition of work by Mason Gross students. Each student created a zine that reflects the themes of the piece displayed, which visitors are welcome to take home while supplies last.
