Punk, politics and British youth culture 1975-85

“Punk has become a defining moment of British cultural history,” writes Matthew Worley on the Leverhulme Trust website. “In its rhetoric and style, [it] seemed to encapsulate the late 1970s: the sense of crisis so resonant of the decade. It also seemed to infuse youth culture and popular culture with political significance.” This project is designed to examine the substance of punk, looking at its performance, processes and product to assess the extent of its significance as a site of political expression. In so doing, it will explore the ways in which youth culture and popular music can reflect and drive social change. It will also consider how young people forge and express their political opinions.
