judy! the judith butler zine

ada, i could not agree more with your assessment that 90swomen are strategic–sometimes in smarter ways, sometimes not. i also want to introduce you to “judy!” the 1992 zine about judith butler. according to barnard’s online zine library (put together by very cool zine librarian jenna freedman):

“Judy is a Judith Butler fanzine from 1992. The existence of a Judith Butler fanzine alone is enough to crack up anyone involved in women’s studies and zines. Dr. Butler’s response to the zine, made by a college undergrad, is documented in the zine and in Lingua Franca. There are also quizzes, letters, photos and paper dolls.”

A-MA-ZING. there is nothing more to say.

  1. Love it! I think this blend of high and low is very 90s woman. It reminds me of the Julie Ruin song “VGI” (valley girl intelligentsia)

  2. Thanks for the shout-out!

    The Barnard Library Zine Collection is mostly about the print, not the online, but fortunately the Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) has digitized Judy! for all to ravish. http://icanhaz.com/judy
