[Commlist] New book: Punk Now!!

Wed Apr 01 10:15:34 GMT 2020

Intellect is pleased to announce that/**//*Punk Now!!: Contemporary Perspectives on Punk*/ <>/, /edited by Matt Grimes and Mike Dines is now available as an ebook. The hardback edition is currently available from our UK distributor.

/Punk Now!!/ brings together papers from the second incarnation of the /Punk Scholars Network International Conference and Postgraduate Symposium/, with contributions from revered academics and new voices alike in the field of punk studies. The collection ruminates on contemporary and non-Anglophone punk, as well as its most anti-establishment tendencies. It exposes not only modern punk, but also punk at the margins: areas that have previously been poorly served in studies on the cultural phenomenon. By compiling these chapters, Matt Grimes and Mike Dines offer a critical contribution to a field that has been saturated with nostalgic and retrospective research. The range and depth of these chapters encapsulates the diverse nature of the punk subculture – and the adjacent academic study of punk – today.
