Co-creating a "Decolonizing Open Scholarship" Zine

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Zines are DIY, self-published booklets: they are a way of sharing ideas through writing, art, or comics! We'll talk about zine-making as a tool for political education, and go over some techniques for creating them.

We'll then start to work together on a (fun! openly licensed!) DIY resource booklet zine that cover concepts around race, accessibility, power, privilege, and colonialism in the context of open research and OER—and highlight projects/initiatives at the intersections of these topics.

This zine will aim to build off the "Critical Approaches to Open Scholarship" reading list that was part of the OpenCon 2017 do-a-thon. This document was meant to be a community-sourced compilation of blog posts, articles, comics, or other media that offer a critical, anti-oppressive take on various aspects of digital information sharing, open scholarship, libraries and higher-ed more broadly.
