“Punk the Academy (aka. Punk as Method)
With a particular emphasis on the non-hierarchical, ambiguous, and D.I.Y. ethos of punk cultures, this paper makes the case that punk can be used as a lens informing our investigations of other objects, scenes, themes, and theories. The information of punk as method is not assuming punk “has all the answers,” but rather that through subversive aesthetic shock and rupture, punk has the potential to open up new ways of thinking through not only our discourses, but also the social world from which they arise.
