What is With Us: SDC Regeneration Zine Open Call!

By: Billie McKelvie ’21, American Studies Concentrator, Sarah Doyle Center Zine Librarian

For our first open call collaborative zine, we are looking for work thinking about and responding to our theme for the year — Regeneration: Networks of Kinship and Care.

What seeds are you planting?

What do you give birth to? What is reborn through you? 

What do you resist? What forces do you hold against? 

Where are you located inside of your networks? Who do threads of care pull you closer to? 

Respond to these questions or anything off of this theme. We see this zine as a way of encouraging collaborative knowledge exchange and collaborative work in resistance to isolation. Now, as we are theoretically more siloed from each other than ever, what networks are still enabling our collective care and survival? We ask those same questions that ground the feminist work of our center – what is the labor of care? What is the work of reproduction? What does it take not just to recycle but instead regenerate? 

Submit short text, illustration, photographs, or anything else you want to include before December 1st. 

To submit and for more information, fill out our google form here

If you have any questions, contact Billie (they/them) our zine librarian at bonnie_mckelvie@brown.edu
