The Bibliographical Society of Canada (BSC) is pleased to announce that Izabeau Legendre, a doctoral student in the Cultural Studies interdisciplinary programme at Queen’s University, has been nominated for the BSC-SbC’s Graduate Student Merit Award. The Awards Committee was impressed by his work in studying the French and English Canadian Zine movement in an international and socio-political perspective. The Committee was also struck by his strong publishing record.
Izabeau Legendre will be presenting at the upcoming BSC Annual Meeting, which will be held remotely between May 31 and June 1 2021, on his research into zine politics and the institutions of zine culture. This includes a comparative analysis of important centres of zine culture in the Anglophone and Francophone world, with a particular focus on the production and reception of Montreal zines and their makers. He is particularly interested in revealing the role institutions play as key elements of zine culture. IzabeauLegendre will also be invited to publish a revised, article-length version of the paper in the Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada, subject to peer review.
The Graduate Student Merit Award includes a prize of $500.
