ABSTRACT

This article explores an inquiry-based zine-making activity in an advanced Korean language class and the creation of a webzine collection. Zines, which emphasize self-expression, are self-produced publications often created by amateurs. The zine-making project enables students to enhance critical thinking skills by problematizing and researching social issues and language proficiency by expressing their opinions in written Korean. To archive the students’ zine projects, the first Korean language zine collection was established in TSpace, an open access institutional repository at the University of Toronto Libraries. The article discusses the potential of zines as group projects and presents students’ feedback, highlighting their positive impact on promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) values in the learning environment.
