"Revolution Girl Style, Now!" Riot Grrrls were young, college-aged punk musicians and fans in the 1990s who were fed up with the subculture's sexist and violent undertones. Through writing and sharing lyrics, hand-made zines, and recordings, they hoped to create a safer, more equitable punk scene. Students in this course will consider research methods around archives, collections, and acquisition, as well as what it means as a researcher to come across aspects of their own identity reflected through primary materials. This class intentionally asks provocative questions about what constitutes good music in a "do-it-yourself" aestheticized scene, how play and fun have their place in serious activist work, and encourages students to question how (and if) music can represent communal identity.
