Co-organized by a PZL librarian, on March 3rd a panel on Harvard’s campus will look at zines in connection with Samizdat, the tradition of underground Soviet self-publishing, and ask questions about countercultural print materials in university archives. Local zinesters and zine librarians Alana Kumbier and Honor Moody will be talking, Alana discussing her recent book Ephemeral Material: Queering the Archive and Honor talking about the zine collection at Radcliffe’s Schlesinger library. See more information on the full panel, “Notes from Underground: Countercultural Print Material from Samizdat to Zines.”
