The Punk Scholars Network (PSN) is an academic platform that fosters a rigorous, scholarly approach to the study of punk and post-punk. With a global and academically diverse membership, the PSN encourages, and embraces methodological approaches towards punk from a myriad of academic disciplines, including film studies, history, cultural studies, sociology, musicology, art and design and religious studies. Moreover, the PSN endeavours to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of academics, including those of any age, gender, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability and ethnicity. Core to the values of the PSN, therefore, is the creation of an environment where anyone, from any background, can feel safe in presenting, discussing and disseminating their research in the areas of punk and post-punk.
