Socrates was a punk! In this workshop, we'll examine the sound, style, and theories behind the punk rock genre, from a philosophical perspective. Beginning with the "proto-punk" bands of the mid-1970s and moving chronologically into contemporary ""post-punk"" genres, such as emo and pop-punk, philosophical themes will be assessed. In this exploration, we'll use various mediums, such as audio tracks, visual documentation, and written sources. No experience in either punk rock or philosophy is necessary; all materials will be provided.

Meet the facilitator:
Jonathan Finnerty is the Undergraduate Coordinator for the Department of Art & Archaeology. He graduated with his MA in philosophy from the University of Tennessee in 2020 and his B.A. in classics from Rutgers University in 2017. His interest in punk rock stems from a lifelong interest and participation in the punk genre.

To request accommodations for this event, please contact the workshop or event facilitator at least 3 working days prior to the event.
