9th September 2019

Punk has arrived in Lincoln! Between August and November 2019 Lincoln Castle are exhibiting work by artist Jamie Reid and designer Vivienne Westwood. In response to this, academic staff at BGU are hosting an event which draws upon some of the voices often ignored or marginalised in the re-telling of punk history as well as representations of punk and its cultural legacy. The event, titled 'Punk Aesthetics and Sexuality/ies', will be held on Saturday 19th October and promises 'an evening of words, film and art'. There will be a discussion panel of academics, zine community representatives and band members, a short documentary from the Rebel Dykes, and a live set from Kermes. The event has been organised by Laura Way (Lecturer in Sociology) and Francis Stewart (Implicit Religion Research Fellow) as part of their ongoing work as members of the Punk Scholars Network and is part of a series of themed events. This will be a free event however spaces are limited so booking is essential. Refreshments will also be provided and there will be a 'zine’ table on the night. Whilst a free event, donations on the night will be welcomed towards covering the costs involved. As a non-profit event all money received will go to the contributors. Full details of panel members and documentary details will be detailed on the event’s blog and Facebook event page. Remember booking is essential, tickets can be booked here.
