7 Linear Feet (in 10 document cases, 1 flat box, 2 binders and 1 oversize box).
All efforts were made to preserve the original arrangement of the collection, with the exception of oversize materials and zine flats which are housed separately. The collection is arranged into five series: Series I: Filing Cabinet; Series II: Photo Binders; Series III: Media; Series IV: Computer Disks; and Series V. 2015 Accretion.
Kathleen Hanna was an early instigator of the Riot Grrrl Movement, performing in bands such as Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. The Kathleen Hanna Papers consists of flyers, posters, zines and zine masters, notebooks, ephemera, magazines, photographs, media, newspaper clippings, theses and other academic writing, and legal and financial records. The collection documents Hanna's artistic production, participation in the Riot Grrrl movement, curatorial work, and musical career.
Processing Information: The collection was first processed in 2010. It was reprocessed in March 2012 to address preservation concerns. Materials were redistributed among more folders, and selected items were flattened or rehoused in Mylar. At this time, the collection was renumbered and box and folder numbers were changed. To see the original box and folder numbers, please ask a Fales archivist for a copy of the original finding aid, stored in our administrative files. In 2016 an accretion received in 2015 was added to the collection as a new series (2015 Accretion) in keeping with previous arrangement and description decisions. In August 2017, one item was prepared to be moved to offsite art storage in September 2017.
