The Start of a List of Zines about Immigration and Nationality

A while back I asked readers of this blog and a group of zine librarians for suggestions of zines that talk about immigration, nationality and transition. I got a lot of great recommendations (thank you Jenna and Kate and Sara and Tracy and Amy!).

Now I’m sharing the information that I was able to collect and organize–the organization due to the hard work of zine volunteer Erica Saunders (thank you Erica!).

The list below is start at gathering these titles together. If you have additional information (links, authors, etc.) to add, or zines that you wish to have listed, please get in touch (zinecollection(at)brooklyn(dot)cuny(dot)edu) or leave a comment–we will try to keep this list continually updated as we collect and catalog new zines for the collection.

Zines that are available at the Brooklyn College Library Zine Collection are starred(*):
