There are a few opportunities at Douglas College to participate in Zine building.
Digital Daze is a zine for reflecting on the histories we have with the technologies we reached for to make it through the semester during the COVID-19 pandemic. This call is open to students, staff, and faculty. We are looking for narrative prose/writing, poetry, and visual art about past experiences of navigating the online world and the impacts that this virtual space can have on our psyche and our bodies. These past experiences and their impacts might have been harmful or healing – or both.
We acknowledge that work on this zine takes place on the unceded Indigenous, traditional, ancestral lands belonging to the Coast Salish peoples. This includes the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), kwikwəƛ̓ əm (Kwikwetlem) & Sto:lo First Nations. This project is supported by iMPACTS: Collaborations to Address Sexual Violence on Campus; Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Partnership Grant 895-2016-1026 (Project Director, Shaheen Shariff, PhD, James McGill Professor, McGill University
