Description

‘Punk’: Impacting Culture? Influencing change?

Papers and presentations are invited for the fourth Punk Scholars Network conference and postgraduate symposium to be held at The University of Bolton School of the Arts.

According to some, Punk crashed into popular culture in the United Kingdom in year zero, 1976 and crashed out at Wonderland in San Francisco in January 1978.

Is the notion of year zero a myth? Were the seeds of revolution planted not in London in 1976, but in the garages of Detroit or the streets of the Sorbonne in 1968? Was post-punk the authentic manifestation of the DIY ethic?

In 2017 the philosophy and ideology of ‘Punk’ identities remain in rude health and its influence extends to politics, the arts, fashion and culture broadly. It has evolved beyond the limits of its initial incarnation. Where, though do punk’s anti-authoritarian tendencies sit within the academy’s critical investigation of the genre?

The Punk Scholars Network aims to bring together established academics, the next generation of punk scholars, students and practitioners in a supportive colloquial environment which we hope will encourage networking opportunities ideas exchange and foster potential future research collaborations. The programme will consist of keynote speakers, ‘in conversation with’ sessions and thematically-grouped presentation and panel sessions.

Alongside the conference there will be a student exhibition exploring the impact of punk across the arts, including fine art, design, animation, photography, audio, graphics, textiles and fashion.
