Punk & Post-Punk Call for Papers
Punk & Post-Punk is a peer-reviewed journal serving the international academic, industry and journalistic communities engaged with punk andpost-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.
