Curating Resistance: Punk as Archival Method
February 9 - 10, 2018
University of California, Los Angeles
This two-day event, hosted by the UCLA Center for Musical Humanities, focuses on the interstices of punk and archive, using both as method, so as to push the boundaries of these three terms and practices. The conference focuses on documenting punk musicality, how sound repertoires and archival practices can give shape to the lived contours of diversity across scale, from the local to transnational, and what this means in terms of empowerment for research and endeavors that destabilize this colonial history of the academy. Punk as archival method curates resistance by contributing to these larger conversations via the possibilities of musical subcultures’ collaborative systemic interruptions.
