So Fi Zine is an indie publication for sociological fiction, poetry, visual art, and other creative works — a place for people who want to write creatively and make art based on their studies and research. Standing against the exclusive practices of academic publishing, every edition of the zine is free to read online and offered in a DIY print format.

The zine is a space for authors to develop and extend their sociological practice, a space committed to critical questions and the aesthetic evocation of social meaning. The eight editions published so far explore social fictions, voice, sensory attentiveness, social alternatives, disciplinary publics, future imaginaries, modes of creativity and scenes of possibility. So Fi Zine has published 178 creative pieces, including invited guest editorials by Patricia LeavyHoward BeckerLes BackNirmal PuwarRaewyn Connell, Michael Burawoy, Deborah Lupton, Rob Shields, and Ruha Benjamin.


This zine is the brainchild of Ash Watson. This project started as part of an Endeavour Research Fellowship she completed at Goldsmiths, University of London, in 2017. She continues this work now at the Vitalities Lab, University of New South Wales, Sydney, on the unceded lands of the Bedegal people of the Eora Nation. Australia always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
