[Commlist] New book: The Punk Reader + Call for Global Punk Series

Wed Sep 04 21:42:45 GMT 2019

The first offering in Intellect’s new Global Punk series, The Punk Reader: Research Transmissions from the Local and the Global is the first edited volume to explore and critically interrogate punk culture in relation to contemporary, radicalized globalization.

Global Punk is a new book series focusing on the development of contemporary global punk ‘scenes’; reflecting upon their origins, aesthetics, identity, legacy, membership and circulation. Critical approaches will draw upon the inter-disciplinary areas of cultural studies, sociology, musicology and social sciences in order to describe a broad and inclusive picture of punk and punk-inspired subcultural developments around the globe.

This series aims to chart the global existence of punk/DiY ‘scenes’ through the following (this list is by no means exhaustive):
• Origins and legacy
• Use of new media, communications, social networking, internet
• Political appropriation: re-defining of ‘anarchism’, ‘ecology’ anti-authoritarianism within the punk scene • Punk and lifestyle: festival/squatting/traveller culture, vegetarianism, animal rights, straightedge etc • Notion of local/national/international ‘scene’, tribes and neo tribes, counterculture/subculture, post-subcultures, new social movements • Music and the performer: creativity, authorship, problems with definition, crossing musical boundaries • Reception: DiY culture, activism, considerations of scenes, spaces and places
• Gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity, race and identity
• The art of the punk: the use of record covers and associated merchandise to convey cultural/political/social ideals.

To propose a manuscript, or for more information about the series, please contact the series co-editors Russ Bestley, (r.bestley /at/ and Mike Dines, (M.Dines /at/
