Call for papers: Punk & Post Punk

Punk & Post-Punk is a new peer-reviewed journal serving the international
academic, industry and journalistic communities engaged with punk and
post-punk culture. It explores the concepts of ‘alternative’ and ‘independent’
established during the punk explosion and developed through the ensuing
post-punk era. Punk remains among the most significant and influential popular
culture phenomena of the last forty years. Complementing the journal’s historical
focus, therefore, is a prominent contemporary aspect. This considers how punk
and post-punk’s ethos and aesthetic are absorbed into the present and projected
into the future.

Article submissions
We invite students of the punk and post-punk eras, as well as those from related
disciplines into which punk’s influence has fed – including researchers, teachers
and practitioners – to contribute to the first issue of Punk & Post-Punk. We
welcome papers exploring punk’s impact on the wider culture beyond music,
including the arts, language, iconography, sociology and gender and race
issues. We particularly encourage papers discussing regional and international
differentiation and contribution. Similarly, each issue will aim to feature at least
one paper in which relevant visual imagery will be a major component.
Articles should be between 4,000 and 6,000 words in length.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):
• Etymology and Language
• Genre Definition and Development
• Antecedents and ‘proto-punk’ influences
• Methodologies and theories appropriate for research and study in this field
• Industrial structures and practices in relation to production
• Gender, class and race issues
• Comparative study between nations or regions, cultures and industries
• Associated cultural industries including fanzines and fashion
• Performance of Style
• Concepts of Independence
• Modernist and Post-Modernist influence
• Global impact and Inclusion
• Performance authenticity
• Archival Approaches

Potential contributors should send a 200-word abstract to co-editor Dr Philip
at. A prompt response will assess eligibility for inclusion and provide writer’s guidelines. The deadline for submitting completed articles for peer-review is 31 December 2010.

Punk & Post-Punk will be officially launched at the University of Leeds in
September 2011.
