This chapter provides an overview of punk scholarship within the context of the origins and formation of the Punk Scholars Network.

Afterword to Your wisdom, our youth: postgraduate studies in punk, the first academic collection to draw upon postgraduate research in exploring the punk scene. Cutting-edge studies, spanning both local and global contexts, are covered with contributions from a range of academic disciplines, including art and design, sociology, cultural studies, English, and music. The chapters are loosely focused around three themes: scenes; gender, “race” and sexuality; and therapy and laughter. The collection builds upon, and diversifies, existing academic work in punk studies covering such topics as “whitestraightboy” hegemony, straight-edge in France, CRT and the links between punk and the “rave” scene of the 1990s.
