Talk by Lisa Gitelman on amateur publishing on April 9 4pm in SLIS Commons

And another one coming up next week:

The Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture
School of Library and Information Studies
2013 Annual Lecture
Tuesday, April 9, 4 p.m.
SLIS Commons, 4207 Helen C White Hall 
Lisa Gitelman
New York University 
Amateurs and Their Discontents, 1870-2000
"Amateurs and Their Discontents" is based on the epilogue to a longer project entitled Paper Knowledge: Toward a Media History of Documents. It offers a selective history of amateur self-publishing in order to render a long history of zines at the same time that it challenges both analysts and enthusiasts of DIY publishing to think beyond the opposition of the subculture and the mainstream.
