This zine is a collection of biographies and portraits of badass womxn in the Pacific Northwest. Undergraduate students collaborated to create this resource that fuses multilingual poetry, art, and writing to celebrate and honor some of the strongest people you might not have heard of. It was created in an interdisciplinary gender, women & sexuality studies classroom led by Dr. Julie Shayne, librarians Penelope Wood and Denise Hattwig, and peer facilitator Nicole Carter.
This zine is the end result of a one-quarter project in a 200-level Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences / Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies class at UW Bothell. Students worked on this assignment in parallel with readings, class discussions, and other assignments. Most students had not had previous experience with GWSS, zines, or Pressbooks/online publishing or open access.
The Washington Prison History Project (WPHP) aims to provide researchers, policy-makers, students, and others with artifacts and scholarship related to the history and ongoing reality of mass incarceration in Washington state. It provides documentary evidence of the robust civil society that exists within the state's prisons and detention centers, as well as the complex linkages between prisoner organizing and the diverse communities that incarcerated people come from, return to, or are otherwise connected with. The project gathers documents of and testimonials by incarcerated people about issues ranging from criminal justice and the urban condition to popular culture and the natural world.
The WPHP is a multi-year, multi-faceted digital scholarship project. Students have been involved in both short-term, single-course contributions, and long-term scholarly and technical roles.
