Reflections on the peripheral: Punk, pedagogy and the domestication of the radical
This article sets out an auto-ethnographic and theoretical approach in examining the complex intersections of punk, pedagogy and academia. Employing a biographical narrative – including the author’s own work as an academic and educator – this article highlights the complexities in researching, writing and publishing in the field of punk/subcultural studies. In particular it draws upon critical pedagogy to inform and unpack notions of a ‘punk pedagogy’ and to critically appraise the relationship between academia and identity politics. In particular it examines links between the marketization of education and identity politics. In conclusion, the article notes the precarious nature of punk academia: one that needs to resolve inner tensions to remain critical and current.
