African American literature has always been under assault and faced threat of erasure. Yet, we are experiencing a heightened moment of attack, when political activists are using legislative action to attempt to eradicate Blackness, intersecting identities, DEI initiatives, and the history of race in America from public education and consciousness. Therefore, this is an important time for us to proactively discuss how we teach African American writing and its expressive power to help us understand our pasts, presents, and futures.

updated:

Sabina Fazli / Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany
deadline for submissions:

Zines are extremely versatile and shapeshift across various historical and cultural contexts. The term covers a wide range of objects with different aesthetic and material qualities as well as contexts of production and reception: Zines accommodate the collective concerns of fans and activists (zintivism) and the personal voice of the diarist and letter writer. Since the rise of digital media, zines and their aesthetics have become portable: Digitised and digital zines exist alongside blogs, social media, podcasts, and substacks, which seem to exhibit zine-y tendencies, while digital infrastructures have changed the ways that print zines are produced, distributed, and archived.
