In this class we’ll be watching the documentary Punk: Attitude. The film surveys the history of punk, especially the relationship between the United States and England.

Afterwards, we will discuss the transmission of punk back and forth across the Atlantic, the formation of bands and music communities, and the lasting impact of the movement. We will also look at punk’s relationship with other subcultures, such as hip-hop.
