  1. PART 1: The Punk Explosion 1975-1979 (Autumn term) 234 items
    1. Punk & Post-punk: defining concepts 5 items
      In this introductory session, we set out the principles and direction of the module, and look to establish some key definitions. There will be discussion of the meanings of "punk" and "post-punk": are they delineated by style? An ethos? An etiquette or philosophy? Is punk art? In particular, we will explore the concept of "post-punk" as a category of historical analysis, and highlight the ways in which it can be used to understand the shape of British contemporary history since the 1970s.

    2. Punk history 25 items
      These sessions are devoted to charting the emergence of punk in Britain in the middle 1970s. Alongside some conventional historical questions (e.g. "What were the social and cultural origins of punk?" "What were the effects of punk?" "Where did punk originate?"), we will also consider some of the issues that arise from establishing punk historiography: who gets to tell the "true" story of punk? What role does memory and autobiography play in establishing punk narratives? Is it meaningful to talk about "punk myths"? What is the meaning of the past for a culture that embraces "no future"? Why make the claim that "punk's not dead"?

What is a subculture and where does subcultural theory come from? What is the relationship between subcultures and the market? Why does the sell out matter? To what extent are post-punk subcultures produced already ‘in the know’ regarding subcultural theory? What explains the academic interest in subcultures? Has subculture replaced class?

Three elements will be at the centre of the discussion: post-subcultural theory, identity and intersectionality, incorporation.

    6. Moral panics II: folk devils 25 items
      This second session extends the analysis of moral panic in the immediate response to punk to consider how deviancy has been historically constituted on a longer term basis in contemporary British society. In particular, it explores the notion of the folk devil as a way of understanding the position of marginal groups in mainstream society. Why do you think there has been much more focus on moral panics than on folk devils in the literature? What is the role of popular press and media and particularly film in spreading the word around identities? Who were the Folk Devils of the 80s?

    7. Autonomous media 1: fanzines and punk aesthetics 37 items
      In these sessions, we we will ask whether the various DIY productions of punk constitute a recognisably distinct aesthetic. In short, is punk art? However, we will also be situating this aesthetic in its various social situations: to what extent was an identifiable style vital in the constitution of punk and post-punk networks? In this first session, we will focus on fanzines and graphic art as a typical expression of the DIY ethos, and a significant factor in its dissemination through networks of affinity and identification. We will also look at how the fanzine ethos transferred into commercial media through 1980s magazines such as Blitz, The Face and ID.

    8. Autonomous media II: film and documentary 11 items
      In this second session on punk and DIY media production, we will focus on film and documentary makers such as Don Letts, Wolfgang Büld and Julien Temple. Their films offer a valuable documentary source for the historian. However, in their specific identification with various aspects of the punk movement, these film makers also sought to fuse a punk sensibility with the practice of projecting an image of punk that would be visible in both the form and content of the films they produced. We will therefore evaluate the historical significance and impact of these efforts.

We'll also consider the social impacts of punk style: how did punk fashion incorporate or challenge conventions of gender and sexuality?

    1. Radical scenes I: anti-racism and the far right 60 items
      We start our look at the longer term resonances of punk by considering how popular culture in the 1980s and 1990s was repeatedly implicated in struggles over nation, identity, race and place in Britain. In the first session, we will consider how youth culture evolves within geographical and local settings, both reproducing yet also extending the boundaries of community affinity and belonging. In the second seminar, we will focus specifically on the rise of the far-right in Britain during the early 1980s, and consider ways in which popular and youth cultures were caught up in this political shift.
