Ethics, Politics, and Anarcho-Punk Identifications : Punk and Anarchy in Philadelphia (Hardcover)
About this item
Ethics, Politics, and Anarcho-Punk Identifications explores the ways in which those who identify as punks and anarchists living in the Philadelphia are construct their identifications narratively through the use of ethics. The book shows that contemporary subcultural and political identifications are complicated by the multiplicity of identifications that postmodern subjects must work from. Throughout the book, it is shown that narrators strive to maintain the coherence of their identifications through narrative reconciliations of contradictions and conflicts. The identity label “anarcho-punk” is of particular salience here, as the hyphenation of the two terms, itself a central component of the book’s analysis, forefronts the multiple nature of the identification on the whole. This makes anarcho-punk a particularly interesting identity to study because there we can see clearly the complicated nature of identities in the contemporary age most clearly. Ethics, Politics, and Anarcho-Punk Identifications includes chapters focusing on the entry into subculture, fashion, punk, politics, anarchy, race and racism, gender and sexuality, and more coupled with in-depth theoretical analysis.
