Curating Resistance: Punk as Archival Method Conference at UCLA

At a time when performative resistances to exploitative mainstream cultural practices are increasingly under attack, punk persists as an important space for cultivating and curating expressive means.

Bringing together scholars, musicians, fans, writers, and community members, including bands, public

intellectuals, and workshops, Curating Resistance: Punk as Archival Method is teaming up with the UCLA Library Special Collections “Punk Archive” for hands-on, thoughtful community building within, across, and beyond the university. The two-day event will consist of music, panels, installations, presentations, zines, hands on workshops, and so much more!

We invite submissions from all punk scholars, public intellectuals, music writers, resistant historians, critical students, misfit theorizers, queer thinkers, feminists, archivists, freaky writers, and anyone interested in how punk’s resistant music, history, and philosophies are protected, preserved, and circulated as well as the stakes of these practices.

Some things we are interested in include but are not limited to:

- Intersections of punk and the archive
- ways punk is preserved and circulated and the stakes of those practices
- punk identities
- punk or archiving as resistance for queer, trans, poc, womxn, non-binary, differently abled, undocumented, working class individuals
- the politics of punk preservation
- critical approaches to punk media
- dismantling white supremacy in archives or in punk
- punk pedagogies
- hidden transcripts and markets
- border/genre transcending and crossing
- resistant literacies and DIY genealogies
- tensions between punk and institutions
- punk as a space for historical presence/presents and futurities
- punk as space for the creation/maintenance of alternative genealogies, unconventional families, and community dialogue.
