Presentation on the locality of zine culture

Our friend and zine scholar Kiyoshi Murakami recently gave a presentation on how important the local aspect of zine culture can be. You can see his presentation notes online: Zine Culture and Locality/Regionality: The Significance of Practices Derived from That Relationship (consider using DeepL for a more accurate translation). Murakami describes the significance of small local publishers to cultural formation in local communities. He also talks about the usefulness of zine events like workshops or zine fests, and recommends zine archiving as a valuable practice, suggesting that zine libraries might best be created in partnership with public libraries, public museums, and community centers.
