While the punk scenes and subcultures of the late 1970s and early 1980s are well known and well documented, the proliferation of punk after the year 2000 has been far less studied. Trans-Global Punk Scenes brings together contributors from a range of disciplines to examine the global influence of punk in the new millennium, with a focus on punk demographics, the evolution of subcultural punk styles, and the notion of punk identity across cultural and geographic boundaries. International in scope and analytical in perspective, the chapters offer insight into the dissemination of punk scenes and their form, structure, and contemporary cultural significance in New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Ireland, South Africa, Mexico, the UK and US, Brazil, Siberia, Portugal and the Philippines. Critical engagement with local, national and trans-global contemporary punk scenes across countries and regions including thematic discussions on the evolution and adaptation of subcultural styles, punk demographics and the notion of punk identity.
