Alastair Gordon and Mike Dines are seeking contributions from the inter disciplinary areas of cultural studies, musicology and social sciences, for an edited text on the global punk/DiY „scenes“ of the 2000s onwards; reflecting upon the notion of origins, music(s), identity, legacy, membership and circulation. Aiming to continue the work of George McKay – and, most notably his DiY Culture: Party and Protest in Nineties Britain (1998) – this volume will attempt to traverse the global as a means of mapping the existence of punk/DiY post-2000. As such, this volume will adopt an essentially analytical perspective so as to raise questions initially over the dissemination of the scene and subsequently over its form, structure and cultural significance beyond the 1990s.
As such, this volume will encompass the global dissemination of a subculture / scene, with guaranteed chapters surrounding Japanese punk, Indonesian anarcho-punk and Mexican punkethnography.
However, this is not to say that proposals surrounding the British / American scene of the post-2000s would not be welcome. Within a truly global edition, we feel that the geographic should be one that represents a „level-playing field“ – and we do not wish to inadvertently discriminate between countries/cultures.
