Reviews “Piepmeier’s work is an insightful and long-overdue engagement with the feminist work in zines, which played a pivotal role not only in Riot Grrrl but also in the development of the Third Wave in general. Though they all reflect the personal style of the creators, they are also sites for constructing narratives, identities, and communities. Girl Zines is the first book-length exploration of this exciting movement. I reread this to get ready to write about riot grrrl zines.
Built on the Johns Hopkins University Campus. Mariah Cherem rated it it was amazing Mar 31, Like Adela Licona’s book Zines in the Third Space, she uses case studies of zines — mostly close readings — but combines these readings with other qualitative methods, especially interviews with select zine writers. Some are great choices, but there are important zines are grrrl zinesters left out. To ask other readers questions about Girl Zinesplease sign up.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Ellen rated it birl was amazing Feb 13, I just reviewed this for Bookforum Things I liked about the book: At the very least she should have a disclaimer or retraction or something.
A great in-depth study on the radical potential of zine making by girls and women and the ensuing community that accompanies this tradition of independent media making.
I think that anyone looking for some reading into feminism should check this out, it certainly I was reading this as research into making girl zines for a project for school.
Jun 08, Rebekah rated it liked it Shelves: Her use of Bust as a zine which she spends a great deal of time discussing drives me nuts since there are so many other zines she could have focused on which I think would have worked better. Girl Zines takes zines seriously, asking what they can tell us about the inner lives of girls and women over the last twenty years. Without cookies your experience may not be seamless.
