DIY Feminism: Grrrl Zines in the Third Wave, an exhibit

I recently curated an exhibit using materials from the Special Collections and Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library at The University of Michigan. It focused on the intersection between Third Wave feminism and zines. I put up a physical exhibit in the The University of Michigan’s graduate library y and also created a digital exhibit using Omeka.

Definitely not great quality, but a photo of one of the cases in the physical exhibit.

Omeka is a content management site for organizing digital collections and is a great way to create and publish exhibits. The UM Library has an organizational account for the creation of multiple exhibits, but anyone can sign up directly through Omeka and create an exhibit of their own with a personal account. You could even make an digital collection of some of your own personal items just for fun! I found it really enjoyable and a good way to get hands on work with digital collections and metadata.

A case featuring books the library has on the topic of Riot Grrrl, Third Wave feminism, DIY publishing, zines, etc.
