Jonah Coman is creating zines about medieval visual culture

Museums, classrooms, popular books, news, mainstream media is biased towards normative images and bodies that are classical, white, abled, cisgendered. But history is so much more than that - historical sources are much more than that. I am dedicated to bringing medieval diversity and creativity into the spotlight. As a queer guerrilla educator, I resorted to zines (a self-publishing medium that has historical ties with the queer and larger punk community) to bring these overlooked images to more than just a handful of trained historians.

Each month I will bring out a new Medieval Miscellany similar to the ones already published in my Issuu Library. The miscellanies will be freely available as online resources a month after the Monthly Medieval Miscellany has been delivered to the patrons. The print format (back-issues as well as early-bird new issues) is exclusively available to the patrons. Some months, there will be Patron Saints that determine the subject matter of that month's miscellany.
