Call For Papers: Punk & Post-Punk
Volume 2

Punk & Post-Punk is pleased to announce a new Call for Papers.


The journal is currently building on the success of its first issue with the imminent publication of issues 1:2 and 1:3 – the latter an Eastern European-themed edition.


 Looking forward to 2013, the editors invite submissions for our second volume.  



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 on-going success 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 aims to feature at least one paper in which relevant visual imagery is to 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 Kiszely at A prompt response will assess eligibility for inclusion and provide writer’s guidelines.


The deadline for submitting abstracts is Monday 1October 2012

Punk & Post-Punk issue 1.1 is available to access for free online.
