The worlds of punk-rock and academia have converged and influenced each other in some interesting (if not peculiar) ways. A once marginal subculture, documented in homemade zines and three chord songs, has become fodder for dozens of scholarly articles, books, dissertations and well-mannered debate. Punkademics explores these varied intersections by featuring contributors who best understand the odd combination of punk and academia.
"Zack Furness and his nerdy bunch impressively reveal how the alternative tentacles of youthful rebellion are infiltrating and disrupting the predictable routines of the academy." - Craig O'Hara, author of "The Philosophy of Punk: More than Noise"
