With names like The East Village Inky, Mend My Dress, Dear Stepdad, and I’m So Fucking Beautiful, zines created by girls and women over the past two decades make feminism’s third wave visible. These messy, photocopied do-it-yourself documents cover every imaginable subject matter and are loaded with handwriting, collage art, stickers, and glitter. 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. Alison Piepmeier argues that these quirky, personalized booklets are tangible examples of the ways that girls and women ‘do’ feminism today. The idiosyncratic, surprising, and savvy arguments and issues showcased in the forty-six images reproduced in the book provide a complex window into feminism’s future, where zinesters persistently and stubbornly carve out new spaces for what it means to be a revolutionary and a girl. Girl Zines takes zines seriously, asking what they can tell us about the inner lives of girls and women over the last twenty years.

I would have climbed up a mountain to get on the list [to serve overseas]. We were going to do our duty. Despite all the bad things that happened, America was our home. This is where I was born. It was where my mother and father were. There was a feeling of wanting to do your part. --Gladys Carter, member of the 6888th To Serve My Country, to Serve my Race is the story of the historic 6888th, the first United States Women's Army Corps unit composed of African-American women to serve overseas. While African-American men and white women were invited, if belatedly, to serve their country abroad, African-American women were excluded for overseas duty throughout most of WWII. Under political pressure from legislators like Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., the NAACP, the black press, and even President Roosevelt, the U.S. War Department was forced to deploy African-American women to the European theater in 1945. African-American women, having succeeded, through their own activism and political ties, in their quest to shape their own lives, answered the call from all over the country, from every socioeconomic stratum. Stationed in France and England at the end of World War II, the 6888th brought together women like Mary Daniel Williams, a cook in the 6888th who signed up for the Army to escape the slums of Cleveland and to improve her ninth-grade education, and Margaret Barnes Jones, a public relations officer of the 6888th, who grew up in a comfortable household with a politically active mother who encouraged her to challenge the system. Despite the social, political, and economic restrictions imposed upon these African-American women in their own country, they were eager to serve, not only out of patriotism but out of a desire to uplift their race and dispell bigoted preconceptions about their abilities. Elaine Bennett, a First Sergeant in the 6888th, joined because "I wanted to prove to myself and maybe to the world that we would give what we had back to the United States as a confirmation that we were full- fledged citizens." Filled with compelling personal testimony based on extensive interviews, To Serve My Country is the first book to document the lives of these courageous pioneers. It reveals how their Army experience affected them for the rest of their lives and how they, in turn, transformed the U.S. military forever.

Szenen wie Punk, Hardcore und HipHop sind maßgebliche Sozialisationsinstanzen für Jugendliche und juvenile Erwachsene. Die dem Band zugrunde liegende projektbasierte Studie legt den Fokus vor allem auf das forschungsintern stark vernachlässigte Szenemedium „Fanzine“ (Amalgam aus „Fan“ und „Magazine“). Diese oft als bricolageartige DIY-Publikation von Fans für Fans realisierten „Zines“, dokumentieren wichtige Szeneorientierungen, die einer tendenziell interview- und ethnografielastigen Szenenforschung zu entgehen drohen. Erstmalig in diesem Umfang und aus Perspektiven der Soziologie, Psychologie, Erziehungswissenschaft und Geschlechterforschung werden die Inszenierungen von Zugehörigkeit, Jugend(lichkeit), des Politischen und des Geschlechts in Untergrundmedien umfassend und interdisziplinär analysiert. Die HerausgeberDem Forschungsverbund Techniken jugendlicher Bricolage "JuBri" gehören an: Tim Böder, Julia Chaker, Marc Dietrich, Paul Eisewicht, Melanie Groß, Ronald Hitzler, Günter Mey, Arne Niederbacher, Nicole Pfaff, Christian Schmidt, Christin Scheurer, Almut Sülzle, Anja Thieme und Christiane Wehr.

Girls Feminist Blogging In A Postfeminist Age

Girls’ Feminist Blogging in a Postfeminist Age explores the practices of U.S.-based teenage girls who actively maintain feminist blogs and participate in the feminist blogosphere as readers, writers, and commenters on platforms including Blogspot, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. Drawing on interviews with bloggers between the ages of fifteen and twenty-one, as well as discursive textual analyses of feminist blogs and social networking postings authored by teenage girls, Keller addresses how these girls use blogging as a practice to articulate contemporary feminisms and craft their own identities as feminists and activists. In this sense, feminist girl bloggers defy hegemonic postfeminist and neoliberal girlhood subjectivities, a finding that Keller uses to complicate both academic and popular assertions that suggest teenage girls are uninterested in feminism. Instead, Keller maintains that these young bloggers employ digital media production to educate their peers about feminism, connect with like-minded activists, write feminist history, and make feminism visible within popular culture, practices that build upon and continue a lengthy tradition of American feminism into the twenty-first century. Girls’ Feminist Bloggers in a Postfeminist Age challenges readers to not only reconsider teenage girls’ online practices as politically and culturally significant, but to better understand their crucial role in a thriving contemporary feminism.

Bringing together exciting new interdisciplinary work from emerging and established scholars in the UK and beyond, Litpop addresses the question: how has writing past and present been influenced by popular music, and vice versa? Contributions explore how various forms of writing have had a crucial role to play in making popular music what it is, and how popular music informs ’literary’ writing in diverse ways. The collection features musicologists, literary critics, experts in cultural studies, and creative writers, organised in three themed sections. ’Making Litpop’ explores how hybrids of writing and popular music have been created by musicians and authors. ’Thinking Litpop’ considers what critical or intellectual frameworks help us to understand these hybrid cultural forms. Finally, ’Consuming Litpop’ examines how writers deal with music’s influence, how musicians engage with literary texts, and how audiences of music and writing understand their own role in making ’Litpop’ happen. Discussing a range of genres and periods of writing and popular music, this unique collection identifies, theorizes, and problematises connections between different forms of expression, making a vital contribution to popular musicology, and literary and cultural studies.

Cindy Crabb provides a DIY tour of the promise and perils of sexual relationships in Learning Good Consent. Building ethical relationships is one of the most important things we can do, but sex, consent, abuse, and support can get complicated. This collection is an indispensable guide to both preventing sexual violence and helping its survivors to heal. Includes a foreword by Kiyomi Fujikawa and Jenna Peters-Golden. "Whether or not you think you need it, whether or not you're a survivor, or dating a survivor, or even having sex, you would probably benefit from reading this book. And the people you choose to be intimate with will probably thank you for making their safety a priority." —Nomy Lamm, SINS INVALID (in Feminist Review) "Learning Good Consent ... offers powerful, complicated information (instead of shallow questions and uncomplicated answers). This book speaks to those who are unlearning silence as a safety/communication strategy." —Jen Cross, (in make/shift) "Essential reading." —Colin Atrophy Hagendorf, Support New York, and author of Slice Harvester "What this book does is to stress consent: not 'no means no,' or even 'yes means yes,' but 'Do you want me to stay here with you?' 'Are you here?' 'I thought I wanted this, but I'm not sure now.' 'Do you think we should take this farther?' I'm moved that this book is here. It matters." —Alison Piepmeier, author of Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism

Feminismus ist hip. Beyoncé und Emma Watson bekennen sich zum »F-Wort«, Taylor Swift sowieso. Eine ganze Marketingindustrie schreibt sich »Empowerment« auf die Fahnen, um damit so gut wie jedes Produkt, von Unterwäsche bis Frühstücksflocken, an die Frau zu bringen. Was als politische Bewegung für soziale Gerechtigkeit begonnen hat, scheint heute kaum noch mehr als ein Shoppingtipp in einem großen, bunten Markt zu sein, der uns Lösungen für Probleme und Problemzonen verkauft, die erst das System zu solchen macht. Der Feminismus als Marke setzt individuelle Selbstverwirklichung über kollektive Solidarität. Andi Zeisler, Gründerin und Herausgeberin des *Bitch Magazine,* nimmt in ihrem höchst unterhaltsamen Buch eine schillernde Reihe von Beispielen aus Popkultur, Medien und Werbung unter die Lupe und zeigt, wie der Feminismus vereinnahmt und verwässert wurde. »Ermächtigung« ist in aller Munde, auf der anderen Seite hat die Wahl Donald Trumps zum US-Präsidenten gezeigt, dass Sexismus auf erschreckende Art salonfähig ist. Unerschrocken und mit beißendem Witz erzählt dieses Buch, wie wir es dazu haben kommen lassen, und es erinnert uns daran, dass mit Feminismus eigentlich einmal etwas anderes gemeint war.
